About

This Masters in Commercial Games Development at University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) provides students with an intellectual experience of study in the field of games technology. 

Overview

This Masters in Commercial Games Development at University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) developed and delivered by staff with both technical and games industry expertise, it is designed to meet the increasing shortage of technically adept games developers and programmers. The course also offers a unique pathway into the games industry and wider related research. 

You will be engaged in advanced research and game development activities within PlayWest, UWE Bristol's in-house commercial games studio. Each member of the cohort plays their part in the development team according to his or her prior industry experience: those with more experience or a games-related degree will help guide the cohort as a senior developer, while others will take on the role of standard developer.

Careers / Further study

As well as post-doctoral study and employment in PlayWest itself, the course prepares students for a diverse range of roles within games development (indie and AAA provision), visualisation, virtual and augmented reality, software provision, visual effects, and mobile and app development.

Whether students progress onto employment, academia or their own entrepreneurial enterprises, the course provides a useful and unique launchpad to future success.
