Based on the theme ‘change’ five teams of first and second year students from Computer Science for Games and Digital Games Development took part in the event organised by UKie (UK Interactive Entertainment, the trade body for the UK’s games and interactive games industry).
Our teams had just 30 hours to work together to create a game based on the theme ‘change.’ Game jams are rapid development sessions which get participants thinking on their feet under severe time pressure while working together in small teams. It’s great experience and brilliant for portfolios as taking part in game jam’s is highly valued by employers in the games industry. Read More →
As part of the Integrated Group Project module, our computing students were asked to develop an educational game. The top three games were submitted to the 6th International Educational Games Competition at the 12th European Conference on Games Based Learning (ECGBL 2018) that will take place on 4 – 5 October 2018 at the SKEMA Business School, Sophia Antipolis, France.
All three submissions were shortlisted (out of 60 submissions in total) in the ‘games in development’ category. Three of our second year Computer Science BSc(Hons) students, Tom Corlett (Computer Science BSc), Michael Cruz Cervera and Angel Kozlev will be travelling to France for the final round of the competition where they will present their games to the judges.

If you’ve not yet visited the University of Brighton we have Clearing open days on Saturday 17th and Tuesday 20th August. You’ll be able to take a tour of the campus where you will be studying, get advice about accommodation, take part in a Q&A with academic staff and chat to students. Find out more about visiting us.
If you’re navigating big choices and big changes, we say: stay curious, explore, and trust yourself. The best journeys don’t always follow a map.
Young people with an interest in science and engineering can learn how to turn their passion into a career at a science fair in Brighton tomorrow (11 July).
Big Bang @ Brighton will take place at the University of Brighton and organisers are promising “an exciting, colourful and noisy event” aimed at encouraging more students to pursue further studies and potential careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
Elise Davies, Digital Media BSc(Hons) tells us about her final year project (and her course).
“I chose Brighton because not many universities offered digital media and I liked the variety of the course. I was going to choose graphic design but I wanted the knowledge of coding which this course given me. The city of Brighton was also a big factor, there is always something going on and it’s a lovely city to live in.
