Arts, Media and Computer Games

School of Arts, Media and Computer Games

In the School of Arts, Media and Computer Games, we aim to educate our students to be the innovators and ground breakers 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.

All of our courses have professional body accreditation and the school is designated as the Scottish University Centre for Excellence in Computer Games Education. Our teaching spaces have been designed to be like modern work environments, and in those spaces you will find students from many different disciplines, working side by side in a collaborative and creative manner.

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

The School offers courses built on developing your skills and work experience, and preparing you to step straight into an exciting and rewarding career in a range of rapidly developing modern industries.

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.
