LONDON, April 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- TIGA, the games industry trade association, is pleased to announce the re-accreditation of the following games courses at Sheffield Hallam University:

  • BSc (Hons) Computer Science for Games
    Re-accreditation – awarded
  • MComp (Hons) Computer Science for Games
    Re-accreditation - awarded

The BSc (Hons) Computer Science for Games has a strong programming focus with plenty of opportunities to develop the skills students will require for technical careers in the games industry, including working on indie or AAA titles.

The MComp (Hons) Computer Science for Games course shares the first two years and much of the third with the BSc, but provides an additional year to develop the depth and breadth of students' industry skills. The opportunity to focus on shader programming and multiprocessor architectures would equip students well for working in core technology roles or on product teams. 

The recorded destinations of students graduating from both courses showed significant proportions gaining employment and a high level of graduates using their game technology skills in future employment.  

BSc (Hons) Computer Science for Games Destinations

  • Percentage employed after 15 months: 85%
    (Graduate Outcomes survey data from HESA 2017-18)
  • Percentage employed in games: 21% 
    (University data for 2017-2018 ignoring unknown students)
  • Percentage employed using their game technology skills: 88%
    (University data for 2017-2018 ignoring unknown students)

MComp (Hons) Computer Science for Games Student Destinations

  • Percentage employed after 15 months: 80%
    (from Graduate Outcomes survey data from HESA 2017-18)
  • Percentage employed in games: 29% 
    (University data for 2017-2018 ignoring unknown students)
  • Percentage employed using their game technology skills: 94%
    (University data for 2017-2018 ignoring unknown students)

The TIGA Accreditation Team was impressed by the following examples of best practice:

  • The accredited courses demonstrate a well thought out course structure with  technical C++ programming skills embedded throughout the programmes. This technical emphasis prepares graduates well for employment in programming roles in the games industry and has been well integrated into the new Project Based Learning (PBL) course structure.
