    Course Outline

    This course is typically taken as 3 years of classwork, followed by a 4th placement year for those who successfully apply for the placement program. This is a competitive program, though, and participation is not guaranteed.

    Year 1:

    Your first year will see you studying a set of required core modules which you’ll need to appreciate higher level content later. These will include introductions to programming, mathematics and several technical skills.

    Year 2:

    In year 2 you’ll move on to core modules which build on your first year, including 3D modelling, software engineering, game design and video production.

    Year 3:

    The majority of your third year will be taken up by the highest level core modules and electives which will prepare you for your placement and a transition to your career proper.

    Placement Year:

    You may apply for a one year work placement in the industry, which will give you not just critical practical skills but also the industry contacts which could make your career path much easier.
