What you'll learn in the game programming program

Get more out of your education with a quality curriculum, career services, live weekly sessions with your industry mentor, plus support, regular events, and networking in our amazing online community.

Your introduction to game programming starts with learning the fundamentals, focusing on the C++ programming language.

We will introduce basic C++ syntax as well as advanced techniques, and by the end of the semester, you will have enough knowledge to create your first C++ game. 

You will be introduced to the Unreal Engine editor and see how the editor interacts with C++ code while building levels and gameplay elements.

Blueprints will be introduced as another way to visually add logic to your games. You'll build a simple game with input, collision, basic AI, User Interface, and audio. 

In this semester, you will tackle some more advanced uses of the Unreal Engine for a more complete picture of developing Unreal games, including character animations, particle effects, serialization, loading and streaming levels.

Finish the semester by developing your own fully playable game from scratch. 

Discover how to polish and present your portfolio to impress employers, learn how to network and market yourself effectively, and understand how to tap into the hidden job market.

Learn all you need to know to take your work and package it up for post-study employment. You'll explore avenues to host your work on industry websites to gain visibility, as well as ways to host work on your own site in a professional manner. 

As a student you also get access to career services to get clear on your career goals, polish your CV/resume and portfolio, write appealing application letters. You'll also get an insight into freelancing: finding work, discussing finances, and applying standards for private client-based work. 

Graduate feeling ready and confident to kick-start your career in this exciting industry!
