The MSc in Computer Games Technology at Bournemouth University offers a mix of practice-based research through the use of state of the art game production facilities and taught classes by academics and industry experts. It consists of five taught units and an independent project, which can be a dissertation, a portfolio of work, a software application or another combination of suitable deliverables.
