Summary

MSc Games Development and Design is designed to build on students’ existing computer programming skills to provide the knowledge and skills to develop contemporary video games, using a variety of advanced tools and platforms, such as virtual reality.

Industry context is an important aspect of this programme, and students also study game design topics which are applicable to industry work and independent game creation, as well as research techniques appropriate for further postgraduate study. This is underpinned by the industry experience of our staff, many of which have either been employed in the games industry, or have current active connections with industry.

The course is informed by the work of staff who specialise in games, either with industry experience or from their research backgrounds in relevant areas. It is further supported by the Lincoln Games Research Network which connects staff with an interest in games across the University and beyond, providing a rich source of input and perspectives.

Guest speakers from industry, both from games companies and other related areas, will contribute to the Frontiers of Games Research module. This is designed to help students to develop industry perspectives, and better prepare them for employment or further study.
