A core set of six sequential units enable you to produce a diverse portfolio including a board game, pervasive game, digital prototype, and original game title in your final year.
The computer science component focuses on developing expertise in software development and computer science. You'll receive extensive education in contemporary approaches to the analysis, design and implementation of large-scale systems, along with a sound understanding of the traditional aspects of computer science such as hardware and operating systems.
Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. In this double degree, you'll apply your learning in six project units related to computer science in professionally focused, industry-linked projects.
