Design and create your own 3D game level using the latest industry standard software!

This course will introduce you to the production processes required in creating a computer game. You will be taken through the games design process using game design techniques, 3D modelling software and computer games engines. At the end of the course you will have created original game assets that can be used within your portfolio.

You will study at Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies in our Creative Quarter Campus – a tech-head's dream with cutting-edge facilities.

You will plan and design your game and research your ideas to create an original game design. Using the Autodesk suite you will create the 3D models that will be found in your environment and make decisions on characters, objects, colours, sizes, shapes and textures. Once your assets are complete you will import them into the Unreal Engine and here you will be able to create obstacles, consider how your character moves and the environment your game takes place in.

You should have completed at least one year of undergraduate studies and, as this is technology/software focused, have a basic understanding of IT. You should also have the required English language skills.
