Teesside has fantastic state-of-the-art facilities for games students including high-end computers with dual screens and where appropriate Wacom graphics tablets.

This games design course gives students the business, theoretical and practical skills needed to succeed in this rapidly growing industry. They learn to develop compelling games with exciting mechanics and strong gameplay, both as an individual and as part of a team. While the main focus is on casual games design, the skills taught also apply to roles within the broader games industry. As well as developing core theoretical and practical design skills, students also develop their entrepreneurial abilities to equip themselves for work as an independent developer in the social, casual and mobile games field.
