At the heart of this are the key skills for representational art; drawing, painting, illustration.

 

The unit will examine key features of available 2D graphics platforms used for creating drawings and paintings for games and animation. It will also introduce the fundamentals of drawing and representation through exercises in methods that are typically used for environmental and concept art in the games development and animation production process

 

The unit will also provide valuable experience and development of technical skills in extending and customising applications for content including artwork, animations and digital media. Students will be given opportunities to apply the drawing principles they have learned in order to review and improve their 2D graphics artwork.

 

Principles Of Games Programming

What programming techniques are used when making computer games? This unit will relate programming concepts in the particular case of computer games development using a suitable modern object-oriented programming or scripting language such as C# and a current game engine and IDE such as Unity or Godot and Visual Studio. A hands-on approach will be used to ensure that students appreciate the workings of each programming construct by applying them to the implementation of a computer game. Where possible, the unit will make use of assets and design work produced during the Games and Digital Assets Design unit. Good practice in code design, implementation and testing will be encouraged from the start, with a view to producing maintainable software. The unit will involve a mixture of individual work and team-based development.

Fundamentals Of Creative Technologies

This unit has two elements, the first is aimed at your professional development and the second introduces you to the practices of the digital creative industries.

 

Firstly, this unit will equip you with the skills needed to cope with the demands of your course (which are also important to employers) and to help you to become more ‘self-aware’ learners. It will also teach you to develop an awareness of the expectations and professional requirements of your chosen industry.

 

The second element of the unit will lead you to develop your knowledge of the fundamental practical skills of digital creative technologies, and the ability to use them as applied to computer games development, interactive digital technologies and computer animation and visual effects. This section will be comprised of a series of practical-based labs where a range of techniques will be introduced.

Prototyping And Visual Programming

The computer game development life cycle typically begins with initial concept development, pitching of ideas to stakeholders or potential project backers for feedback and evolution of the design in terms of functionality and look and feel via a pre-production phase, culminating in the creation of an interactive prototype. This prototype undergoes refinement via an iterative design process and the final version used as a vehicle to document and express the early game design and mechanics to members of the development team including animators, technical artists, sound engineers and programmers. Team members will then work to continue the development through to final release.

 

This unit will equip students with the skills to develop basic game prototypes and will be taught in two parts: One part will introduce techniques used in the computer games development industry to document and refine a game concept in response to a specific design brief and feedback received. The second part will equip students with the skills to create digital interactive prototypes to demonstrate their game designs. This will be achieved by introducing visual programming for prototype development, with specific emphasis placed on visual programming and procedural coding techniques and will make use of a modern game engine such as, GameMaker Studio, G Develop or Construct 3 with visual scripting or Unreal Engine with templates.

 

Web Technologies And Platforms

You will learn how to use client side and server side technologies to implement web applications.
Issues of design and usability will be explored and you will produce and validate your own product designs prior to implementing them using current development tools.

The primary aims of the unit are:

  1. To equip students with the technical understanding needed for the design and development of web applications
  2. To develop practical skills in the design, implementation and evaluation of web based applications.

Compositing For Visual Effects

This unit provides an overview of the concepts and practices of digital compositing for visual effects, with the practical application of specific industry-standard software tools to create visual sequences or effects.

This is based around 2 parts: 

  • 2D and 3D compositing techniques, and imaging for visual effects
  • The emphasis is on the practice of technical skills with a complimentary underpinning on the theory of optics, physics and algorithms used for visual effects.

Professional Industry Portfolio

This unit gives students the opportunity to improve their employability by developing an individual portfolio of work based on initial research and analysis of job roles and practices in their focused area of the creative technologies industry. This research may also be related to an enterprise project or industry partner introduced by the department. Portfolios are a common tool use in the creative industries for evidencing skills and talent.  Further, portfolios can be used to assist a student with reflective practice as well as platform to articulate complex and technical matters.

The first assignment will be focused in preparing a professional application and Curriculum Vitae (CV) related to a specifically target job role, and will be assessed through presentation, and from feedback from a Lecturer acting as an advisor.

For the second task mentoring will be given towards preparing a portfolio of work – or showreel – over the course of the year. This portfolio, which would also include artefacts developed in other units would collect the entire student’s work by the end of level 5 and provide a point of focus for the student’s development before entering the final year.  Styles and types of portfolios will be examined in a series of seminars over the second-half of the course.

On completing this unit the student will have re-enforced the context for the technical studies that receive in the concurrent units of this degree course, and the ability to reflect on how the technical skills they are developing are relevant and can be applied in further research in the major Undergraduate project in Level 6.

Applied Games Design

Computer games design involves devising immersive player experiences and game environments that challenge player expectations and perspectives. At the same time, game designers must understand how to create intuitive and easy to use UI and control schemes and in-game challenges and obstacles to be overcome and enjoyed without engenderment of excessive frustration in the player.

In this unit, students will develop knowledge of a variety of game genres and mechanics. Additionally, students will learn how to formulate suitable test plans for evaluating the playability, immersion and overall quality of user experience their games provide. Students will have the chance to try out game testing via practical application of a number of industry relevant techniques such as, expert evaluation, focus groups, data analytics and play testing and will learn how to apply their findings to improve game designs.

English Language Foundation

This unit focuses on your ability to understand and use the English language accurately when you read, speak, listen and write. We will concentrate on the English you need for undergraduate level study in your chosen subject area, covering grammar, subject area vocabulary and the four language skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

A key element of the unit is the grammar of the language, and particularly the verb tense system in English, because your ability to use the verb tense system accurately will be extremely important when you come to write essays and reports. This unit will focus in particular on the grammar of the language.

We will also focus on reading, listening and speaking skills in the context of your chosen subject area. Beginning with short texts, we will practise each skill and practise it again, so that gradually you will see, hear and feel that your command of the language is improving. 

A recurring focus of the unit will be your acquisition of 'learner autonomy'. This means your ability to acquire the language yourself, without needing a teacher's help. This is important because from next year you will not have an English teacher to help you. So we will consider and practise strategies to help you gain confidence in your own ability to increase your knowledge of and ability to use the language, including for instance guessing meaning of difficult words, deciding which words are important in a text, recognising differences between formal and informal language, and other strategies, so that as the first semester continues, you begin to feel more confident in your use and experience with the English Language.

Academic Skills Foundation

When you begin your undergraduate level studies, you will be expected to have knowledge of and ability to use a large range of 'study skills'. You will also be expected to have some knowledge of the subject area you will  be studying. This unit deals with both of these aspects of your preparation for undergraduate level study. 

All of the academic skills are practised in English, so you will use your developing acquisition of the language from the partner unit 'English Language Foundation' to practise and gain mastery of these skills. You will also use your language and study skills as you learn the foundation of your subject area, putting the skills into practice as you learn.

Academic Study Skills 2

This unit is designed to help you develop important academic study skills that you will use throughout your university study, as well as preparing you for when you enter into or return to employment.  This is part two of two linked units, which enable you to plan, build and practice your knowledge and skills acquisition gradually, it introduces and develops presentation skills, and professional development planning.

Principles Of Technology 2

The aim of this unit is to enable students to develop an understanding of the theory, practices and underlying technologies associated with the working principles, design and performance analysis of various technologies, in particular those relating to ICT systems. The is the second unit of two related parts and you will cover robotics, Internet of Things (IoT), UX Design, Cyber Security, Software Development and the associated data security and ethical dimensions of application design.

How will you be assessed?


Students are assessed in a variety of ways. The majority of units are assessed through coursework group and individual projects portfolios essays presentations or exams. Presentations are usually given and assessed in the context of a group seminar. You will also produce software artefacts in the area of your specialism. Constant feedback and advice from a supervisory or unit team will be provided to support you in your work. At level 4 you are assessed on your understanding of the fundamental concepts of computing and digital technologies and their application.

You are required to comprehend the basic range of intellectual concepts which form the foundations of the subject and application area and will be assessed on your ability to articulate such concepts in a coherent manner in a variety of project-based briefs. For example you will learn about digital design and content creation for animation as well as introductory programming and interactive development. At level 5 you will be specialising in your chosen option subject and are assessed on your ability to apply the basic concepts of the disciplines introduced in level 4 through further study and development on industry-standard computer games development tools. You should also be able to demonstrate the inter-relationships between technical development and design. At level 6 you will be required to demonstrate independent thinking and initiative.

This may be in the form of analysing and criticising current practice and theory in the fields of computer games development. In all cases you will be expected to show an awareness of the major theories and practices of the discipline. You will progress from well-defined briefs to more open-ended and challenging assessments which culminate in your major project - the undergraduate project unit where you will individually develop a project with supervision from an appointed mentor usually a lecturer from the Subject cluster team. The Initial Assessment is in the unit Fundamentals of Creative Technologies following which several units allow students to use work and feedback from the first assessment to perform best in the second. All units benefit from weekly practical sessions or supervisor meetings that provide a constant learner-teacher interaction process which also serves to reflect on learning styles.

Careers


Successful graduates may gain employment within the games development industry as well as entertainment and media technology e-sports or extended reality (XR) applications (VR AR MR).

Employment options related to each respective specialism may include: games programmer or game-engine software engineer; games designer or user-experience designer for games and applications; 2D or 3D graphics specialist; animator or technical artist for the games industry.
