This relationship helps us improve our course and keep it current. It also means there is an extensive network of Hull alumni working in senior positions in the games industry across the world.

All our Computer Science undergraduate courses offer a guaranteed, paid year in industry, between the second and third year, as a recognised part of your degree.

This programme offers an inspiring combination of computer science and games programming. We'll give you a solid grounding in computer science, set within the context of games programming – concentrating on programming, artificial intelligence, graphics, games architectures and parallel and concurrent programming. In your third year, you’ll do a large project in an area that interests you. The Masters programme will allow you to do more intensive C++ and DirectX.
