BA (Hons) Game Art Design at De Montfort University is a specialist art course that combines traditional fine art practice with contemporary game development technology to develop skills and knowledge that are in high demand across a range of contemporary creative industries.
Students graduate with a portfolio that includes 2d (drawing, painting, texturing), and 3d (sculpting and modelling) in digital and traditional forms.
The course has been developed with input from a number of leading games companies and achieved industry accreditation in February 2010. It is the first course in England to achieve this high level of recognition.
Graduates are employed in a wide range of Games Development companies in the UK, Canada, USA, and Hong Kong and also in creative organisations that are exploring the use of gaming technology for product visualisation, simulation, education and entertainment, such as BMW in Munich, the BBC and the UK military.
