We love computer games. Talking about them, playing them, designing them, building them. If you do too, come and study in our Games Development Studio. You’ll learn to design graphics and games using artificial intelligence, 3D modelling and animation – and create a portfolio to help launch an exciting career. This course has been validated to include an optional Sandwich Placement year in industry.Untitled Page

Forget the stereotypes – gaming isn’t just for teenage boys. Half of all gamers are female, and the average age is 31*. This means the industry is huge, and a variety of exciting jobs await you.
Right from Year 1, you’ll be creating games. Everything you design will build into a valuable portfolio to help you secure your dream job when you graduate. You’ll even have chance to do a year’s work placement – offering plenty of practical experience and a head start in industry.
You’ll study both the theory and practical aspects of gaming and get experience of the whole development process, from initial concepts to programming, testing and publication. You’ll spend plenty of time in our Games Development Studio, which simulates a commercial working studio and features up-to-date hardware and software. We currently have GameMaker, 3DGameStudio, Unreal Tournament 3 Editor, Adobe Flash and Action Script, Java and C++, Microsoft XNA Game Studio, Visual C# Express, Microsoft Visual Studio, Photoshop, GIMP, 3ds Max, Blender, Fusion, Audacity, Second Life and Unity3D.
Eighteen per cent of the UK games industry is based in Cambridge**, so it’s a great place to study, surrounded by studios large and small. Many famous developers are based locally, including Sony, Frontier, Jagex, Inertia Game Studios, Eidolon Studios and PTM Games. Our department is also a member of TIGA, the association for games developers in the UK.
We host the annual Brains Eden Gaming Festival, when students from across Britain and Europe compete in teams to build games.
