For students who do not already hold a GCSE in English Language at Grade C/4 or above Standard Level English Language English A – Grade 4 or above or English B – Grade 5 from the IB will be accepted. Considered with two A-levels or equivalent level 3 qualification one of which must be in a Technology, Science, Mathematics or Computing related subject. The University has put in place measures in response to Covid-19 to allow us to safely deliver our courses. Our brand new £70 million pound building, STEAMhouse, will become the new home for the School of Computing and Digital Technology from the start of the 2022 academic year. Are equipped to be familiar with a variety of contemporary industry tools and agile enough to respond to new technologies and consumer trends.

School Of Computing & Engineering
You should also be able to demonstrate the inter-relationships between technical development and design. At level 6 you will be required to demonstrate independent thinking and initiative. This may be in the form of analysing and criticising current practice and theory in the fields of computer games development. In all cases, you will be expected to show an awareness of the major theories and practices of the discipline. The Initial Assessment is in the unit Fundamentals of Creative Technologies, following which several units allow students to use work and feedback from the first assessment to perform best in the second.
Our computing students have the opportunity to attend training for the PRINCE2 Foundation Level exam. This three-day course gives you the opportunity to achieve an industry-recognised qualification and add another desirable qualification to your CV. All of this has been incorporated into an additional University programme called Graduate+. Guidance in your academic studies will be provided in the form of a range of support mechanisms. This will include formative feedback from tutors, as well as having access to a wide range of excellent support services that exist within the University.
Computer Games Programming Bsc Hons
My favourite moments on my degree was the work I did on my game projects and learning the fundamentals of game engines such as Unity and Unreal. This module introduces students to professional-grade game engines that can be used across a wide array of disciplines including games, computational arts, film, design and science to build virtual worlds. Students will learn how to combine various components of a complex 3D rendering engine, such as geometry, lighting, particle systems, 3D audio and user input, to realize their ideas. Coursework is project-based and students are encouraged to work in mixed artist/engineer teams.
Data that has relevance for decision-making is accumulating at an incredible rate due to a host of technological advances. Electronic data capture has become inexpensive and ubiquitous as a by-product of innovations such as the Internet, e-commerce, electronic banking, point-of-sale devices, bar-code readers, and electronic patient records. Data mining is a rapidly growing field that is concerned with developing techniques to assist decision-makers to make intelligent use of these repositories. The field of data mining has evolved from the disciplines of statistics and artificial intelligence. This module will combine practical exploration of data mining techniques with a exploration of algorithms, including their limitations.
