Goldsmiths Launches new MSc in Computer Games and Entertainment

26.06.2007
Always dreamed of working in Computer Games but not sure how to make the move? Goldsmiths, University of London is now offering an exciting new MSc in Computer Games and Entertainment, with the first students starting this September.

This degree offers a unique curriculum for graduates and professionals from various fields who want to get into the computer games and entertainment industries for the first time or for people who are working in those industries who want to upgrade their skills.

A potential candidate could be someone working writing software systems for a city bank who feels like a career change or a recent bright graduate in computing science who wants to target their skills for the games and entertainments industries.

The MSc is focused on advanced programming in C++, new technologies (including procedural programming for multi-core hardware and novel artificial intelligence programming for games) and team work. It is directed and taught by experts from the games and entertainment industries and leading researchers. The course can be taken on a 1 or 2 year basis to give flexibility to people who are working part-time.

Students work together in the Games Studio in the futuristic Ben Pimlott Building, surrounded by an exciting Research Context of genetic programming, complex geometry, pattern recognition and online meta-data tagging work. Students will be encouraged to combine innovation with intelligent programming towards producing a final term team project to make a playable computer game demo for PC or Console or Mobile.

William Latham, MSc programme Director (Creative Director of hit game The THING, PS2, Xbox, PC), said: "This is a very exciting programme and students who do this MSc will gain a firm positioning for a career in the multi-billion pounds Games and Entertainment industries, now expanding across Console Games, Massively Multiplayer games, Casual Games, Serious or Learning Games, Mobile and PC Games, and new emerging areas of social networking games."

"There is a big shortfall in the UK for good games programmers and technical managers/directors and this course will address this serious shortfall. During the course there will be opportunities and events for industry networking to hopefully secure jobs for students in the UK or abroad before they finish"

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
