Computer Game Technology

Your career guide

With the arrival of digital distribution, games now have a bigger audience than ever – making it a great time to get into the industry.

There is great scope for artistic creativity and expression, but whilst previously technological constraints would have required a large team to produce a high-quality games product, there is now potential for a lone individual or small team to launch and promote a project to a worldwide audience.

The opportunities available to you as a computer games technology graduate are varied. Roles can range from game developer to animator, from lead programmer to DevOps engineer or you could consider setting up your own game-related business.

This guide provides you with all the information you need to build your career in computer game technology.
