About this course

Learn to write code or use game-development engines to create computer or video games in a studio environment that mirrors the latest games industry practice.

This program is multidisciplinary, industry-focused and the only one of its kind in Australia.

You'll work with artists and producers to create or modify the game to enhance its capabilities, incorporating digital graphics, animation, sound, video, photographs, and images.

This unique program mirrors the games design industry, giving you the chance to work with digital art teams in a studio environment to develop computer games and graphics software.

Delivered in the context of an IT and design framework, you will learn specialised skills in games and graphics programming.

Studies are set in the broader context of computer science and software engineering. This means graduates will be qualified to work in the games industry as well as the IT industry more generally.
