About

The Computer Game Development programme offered by the Wrexham Glyndwr University is designed to take technical development, management and entrepreneurial skills to a level required to access higher technical and managerial positions within studios, along with the necessary skills to create and maintain viable games/media businesses.

Overview

Computer game development remains one of the fastest growing industries in the digital technology sector, and as such there is an increasing demand for technical specialists, managers and consultants.

We have an excellent track record for graduate employment with many of our students going on to work at some of the UKs most recognisable game studios.

A key element of the course is its emphasis on blending advanced technical development with strong management and sustainable business skills. Through our unique Business Accelerator initiative, we deliver industry standard theory and practice allowing students to gain valuable experience of the business planning and finance along with the management of a game studio.‌‌

Careers

Once you successfully complete the Computer Game Development programme offered by the Wrexham Glyndwr University, your higher level skills in 3D modelling & sculpting, systems analysis, programming and application design will qualify you to work in a variety of higher level roles within this industry. 

Given the business and entrepreneurship skills acquired on the course, some postgraduates opt to start their own game studios with the support of our business incubation centre as part the Business Accelerator programme.

In general, our graduates have a good record of employment, forging successful careers as games technical artists/animators, level designers/developers, producers or scrum masters.
