Representative: Matthew Bett, Professor Ruth Falconer and Emma Sheldon

Join us for this seminar about Abertay’s postgraduate games courses and an introduction to the MSc Computer Games Technology, a course aimed at applicants with an undergraduate degree related to computing, the careers this can lead to, and the exciting projects and research happening at Abertay in this field.

Abertay is a modern university, located in a city-centre campus in Dundee, Scotland’s fourth city. Dundee is well known as one of Scotland’s leading tech industry hubs and Abertay offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees that prepare students for the industries and jobs of the modern world.

Abertay is renowned for its world-leading development of computer games degree programmes. It launched the world’s first computer games degree in 1997. An Abertay student created Grand Theft Auto and the game originated in the city of Dundee.

The University has ranked top in Europe for computer games education every year since 2015 (Princeton Review World Top 25 Games Universities) and was first to be named a UK Centre for Excellence in Computer Games Education. Abertay is proud of its contribution in building the city of Dundee’s place as a global hub for computing and gaming and home to one-third of Scotland’s booming games industry.

The University leads InGAME (Innovation for Games and Media Enterprise), an £11.5 million research and development centre based in the heart of the videogames cluster, in partnership with the University of Dundee, St Andrew University and local and international industry. Abertay’s new Emergent Technology Centre comprises five specialist labs and studios and is a collaborative facility for research and practice, centred on novel digital technologies.

MSc Computer Games Technology

Studying on Abertay’s MSc Computer Games Technology will give students a globally reputable qualification making them highly desirable to employers. Our graduates have gone on to work with the world’s most recognisable games companies, including Ubisoft, Sony, EA and Rockstar North. Others have set up successful games companies of their own.

It’s an ideal route to expand and focus existing programming skills for the development of computer games. Designed and maintained in close association with games companies, the MSc Computer Games Technology course will provide students with access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities. With strong industry links and the opportunity to work on real team projects, students will benefit from developing the skills and expertise essential to computer games companies, as well as building your own network of contacts in this exciting industry.


 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
