At UCLan Cyprus, we are committed in offering quality and highly specialised education in Computer Games Development as part of our BSc (Hons) Computing degree. The programme’s Computer Games Development path is providing a broad and advanced curriculum focusing on games programming, artificial intelligence, computer graphics and advanced 3D rendering techniques using the latest game engines and a wide range of development tools. The programme’s games specialised modules aim to train game programmers, and the programme is constantly evolving to reflect the current needs of the gaming industry. The latter is achieved through the establishment of strong collaborations with key industrial partners. To this end, UCLan Cyprus is collaborating with the Wargaming Rapid Prototyping Team for the exchange of knowledge and expertise.
Dr Louis Nisiotis, course leader for BSc (Hons) Computing and Director of the ‘Rays and Vectors’ student led game studio at UCLan Cyprus explains:
“While the video games industry is one of the most established entertainment fields in the global market, it is only recently starting to grow in Cyprus. We are pleased to see significantly increased interest in computer games development by students, and we are proud of our comprehensive and unique specialisation in this field at UCLan Cyprus. Furthermore, establishing collaborations with local and international game studios and organisations is of paramount importance to connect our students with the industry. Collaborating with Wargaming Rapid Prototyping Team enable us to mutually share knowledge and expertise, and benefit from their industrial knowledge and experience to further improve our curriculum, and our teaching and learning practices“.
Andrey Sobchinskiy, the Head of NGen Team, Wargaming Rapid Prototyping states that: “We highly appreciate our collaboration with UCLan Cyprus. The university provides high level education and shows deep level of technical expertise. The programs we were running until now were of common benefit and we are looking forward to enrich and deepen our cooperation in the nearest future.”
