The world video games market is growing at about 20% a year. Computer game development, a synthesis of technical skills and creative talent, has gone from being a cottage industry of the 1980s to a vibrant global industry. Worldwide, computer games are now a US$28 billion industry, bigger than the movie industry. It has matured to include advanced technologies from software engineering, computer programming, computer graphics, animation, and even artificial intelligence.
In a move to cater to this new niche market, FTMS College has launched the UEL BSc (Hons) in Computer Games Technology.
The programme is part of an ongoing response to changes in the discipline of computer science and its emerging application in the game industry.
