SAE Institute London

London , England ,United Kingdom

BSc (Hons) Games Programming

With over 2,100 games companies in the UK alone, there is a real demand in the industry for talented, technically able graduates who can turn their creative visions into game realities. Put your creative and technical talents to work and be a game-changer in the industry! You’ll learn 2 programming languages (C++ and C#) and then go on to develop your technical expertise in programming, problem solving skills within the context of applying game design theory and mechanics, as well as learning two of the most used Game Engines: Unity and Unreal.

In addition, this course also covers how to develop multiplayer games and mobile app games, graphics programming with OpenGL, shader programming and how to create VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) games.

High quality games bring together both the technical and creative aspects of games programming and you’ll have plenty of hands-on experience. Through the deconstruction of existing games and  Artificial Intelligence principles, you’ll become better placed to understand the markets of the future and how best to impact them. 

With over 32.4m gamers in the UK and with the value of the UK consumer games market reaching a record of £4.33bn last year, there is a clear need for talented games programmers.

Games programming graduates from SAE have gone on to work for blue chip organisations such as Microsoft and Bloomberg and have worked on titles including Pokémon Art Academy, Lego Lord of the Rings and GastroGnome.
