Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Technology HND Computer Games Programming HND COMPUTER GAMES PROGRAMMING Length: 2 years UCAS Code: 106G Institution Code: S72 Campus: Various The computer games industry is huge … and rapidly expanding. Computer games frequently make more money than the films they are based on. Computer Games Programming is a specialist award in the area of software engineering. In addition to covering the principles of software engineering, this award enables students to use specialist software to develop computer games. A study of graphical interfaces and computer graphics is made alongside a solid grounding of programming. There are options available in the related areas of 3D programming, Artificial Intelligence and Computer Games Design. This is a growing field and there are many varied careers for diplomates. In addition, diplomates can find work as software engineers or analyst/programmers.
