Course: BSc Computer Science with Game Engineering
It was the best uni with a Game Engineering course and as a gamer that appeals to me.
About your course
My favourite module is algorithms. Programming languages and computer systems always change, but ways to approach and solve problems barely ever change.
All the staff are very enthusiastic about their fields and extremely approachable. They all work on a first name basis with students. This fosters an amazing learning environment.
Living in Newcastle
The Geordies are very friendly. The cost of living is relatively cheap.
The Computing and Technology Society (NUCATS) organises Arduino programming sessions (electronics), a 24 hour gaming marathon and sessions teaching programming languages.
We have a lot of modules which give detailed practical insight of what working in the industry would be.
