Arts, Media and Computer Games

To mark 20 years since we became the first in the world to offer degrees in games, a programme of celebration has been organised, featuring an array of events, workshops, design sessions, talks and tournaments.

A Game Changers exhibition (from Sat 6 May) will celebrate our two decades of excellence in computer games teaching. We will be showing work from some of our top games graduates who have achieved great things across all disciplines within the industry. Held at the Hannah Maclure Centre at Abertay, this event is free and open to all.

Many more events will be announced soon, so keep an eye on the website for updates.

School of Arts, Media and Computer Games rated best in Europe by Princeton Review

Courses offered by the School of Arts, Media and Computer Games are the best in Europe for an incredible third year in a row.

The prestigious 2017 Princeton Review rankings show Abertay’s games degrees climbed in both the undergraduate and postgraduate World tables, while the University remains the best placed European institution.

At undergraduate level, Abertay moved from 22nd best course in the World last year to 19th in the new register.

The result for postgraduate courses was even better, entering the elite Global Top 10 at 9th place - up from 12th last year.

In the School of Arts, Media and Computer Games, we aim to educate our students to be the innovators and groundbreakers in tomorrow’s computing and digital media-based industries.

We offer a wide range of courses, from ethical hacking and games programming at the science and technology end, to narrative-based animation and digital media creation at the arts end.

We have strong links with industry and major companies, and through those links we ensure that our courses are current and relevant.

Staff in the School are involved in individual and collaborative research with other disciplines at both Abertay and beyond, and in these school pages you will find out who we are, what we teach, where our interests lie, and how we can help you develop interesting and rewarding careers in subjects which are stimulating and rewarding.

The School has two Divisions: the Division of Games and Arts and the Division of Computing and Mathematics.
