Skill Driven

Our course will teach you the fundamental skills to create games technologies from scratch. We won't just teach you how to use tools like games engines, we'll teach you how to make them yourself.

Games Development requires individuals that go over and above, people who are driven to learn and do more. Working with others as you create new virtual worlds will be the hardest and most rewarding experience you could ask for in the computing industry.

Outstanding Employability

A strong emphasis on Maths and Computer Science alongside the Games content will allow you to on take skilled jobs in industries you might not exepct.

What our Students say

At the end of the day, coming to Edinburgh Napier University was one of the best decisions I've made in my life and I would recommend other aspiring game developers to do the same. If I've learned anything from the game development course at Edinburgh Napier University, it would be the value of hard work, determination, and the importance of having a strong desire for doing something you love.
