Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This course will give you a deep understanding of the theory, design, practical Software Engineering and programming skills you need to design and build games, simulation engines and interactive visualisation software applications. You will experience substantial amounts of teamwork essential for working in the technology industry. Your work will go beyond the conventional notions of information technology, as you work on revolutionary ideas, concepts and technologies that were once considered to be science fiction. When you graduate you will find excellent career opportunities in any area of the IT industry that involves software development or software engineering. You will also be uniquely qualified to work in entertainment computing, simulation, visualisation and serious games. Some job titles of our past graduates include Games Designer, Games Programmer, AI Programmer, Physics Programmer, Producer, Systems Designer, Systems Engineer, Simulations Engineer, Software Engineer, Software Developer, Web Developer, Systems Analyst, IT Consultant and Project Manager.
You'll study advanced software design and programming: Artificial Intelligence (AI), human emotion and Physics engine design and construction: game play and game design: graphics programming: interactive virtual environments: multi-user games programming: advanced games and simulations production using various programming languages, software development tools and Natural User Interface hardware. You can combine Games Technology with Computer Science to create a double major that will build your skill sets in Computer Science and practical Software Engineering. You can also combine this course with other majors, including Cyber Forensics and Information Security, Business Information Systems, Internetworking and Network Security or Mobile and Web Application Development.
