Computer Games and Graphics

If you love gaming why not turn this passion into a career in the dynamic interactive media industry? Most computer games courses give you the opportunity to gain design, technical and business skills, with modules in computer animation and 3D modelling, game analysis and testing and game production. Some courses focus more on games design and need creative thinkers; others focus on programming and the technical side, and would suit computer literate students with ability in maths.
