                    engine and Nvidia PhysX physics engine.
                    Requirements, Analysis, Design, Implementation and Testing. All performed
                    under an iterative development lifecycle.
                    Included the creation of 3D models, materials, a user interface, and game
                    rules and algorithms.
                    63 page, 14000 word dissertation and a well-received demonstration of my work.

                    Designed and engineered a piece of software in Java within a paired
                    programming environment.
                    Software had animator/director functionality, the user could edit pixels to form
                    a sprite and then animate their sprite in a small movie.
