The 3D Computer Games Design program offered by Staffordshire University helps you gain all the right skills to excel as a 3D artist or theory-based games designer.
Our course will teach you advanced techniques to use as a character, environment or vehicle and weapon artist, with the aim of setting you up for your future career. As a designer, you will harness the power of ‘Unreal Engine’ to develop complex frameworks, artificial intelligence systems and small games.
Our core modules will equip you in advanced research techniques and production skills covering everything from environmental design to character, vehicle and weapon prototyping.
At Staffordshire University, see your work come to life using industry-standard software for sculpting, texturing, simulating and 3D painting.

- Portfolio entrance requirement:
For 3D artists we’d ideally like to see a high–low poly workflow, 3D sculpting, unwrapping, texturing and the use of a games engine to display assets. We’re lenient about this as some of our best graduates have come from non-games degrees such as architectural rendering or animation or had gaps in their portfolio, so feel free to get in touch!
For designers, we’d ideally like to see an example of level designs, videos/demos of small games and examples of visual /c# scripting. We understand that you may not have used Unreal Engine and are lenient to those who come with other Game Engine experience.
