Hi, I have an hons degree in CS and I'm wanting to get into the games industry. I've been slaving over A.LaMothe's book for a while, but I'd like more of an interactive education. I've been considering the option of doing the year long masters degree in computer games technology at Abertay Uni. I'm curious about how the games industry rates this sort of course i.e. does anyone from the industry know if it is up to speed with current developments? And if you were an employer would you be keen to hire a person with such a degree? Or would I just be wasting my time altogether? Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Neil.

Funny you should bring this up cos i was just talking to their admission office on the phone today...

Anyway, there was a thread about this a while ago and from what i remember the course if pretty damm good. There are lectures given by people from within the game development community and i think i''m right in saying that DMA design were instrumental in the setup of the course a few years back.

Might see you there if you decide to go,

Yeah thats sorta why i'm applying. There only going to do the distance learning IF there aren't enough students applying, soooooo i reckon the more people that apply the better.

Anyway it sounds kick ass, another year of student lifestyle and enough time to make at least one kickass game for my portfolio.

EDIT: By the way, what about you? Anymore further education?
