  1. In the games industry, what is the difference between a technical lead and a project manager in terms of: - work description - difficulty to find a job - salary
  2. Hey Josh, thanks for your reply. Has he told you anything else apart from the C++ course? Where did you find the contact details?
  3. Do you know if it is possible to change from games to graphics or vice versa after a few weeks/ 1st term? Good to hear that many students got jobs straightaway. Do you know if there is the possibility to do an internship / placement year as part of the course? That sounds really great to me! A few more questions: Could you give me an overview of the areas they teach? The information on the website is one thing, but it would be nice to hear it directly from a current student. How deep do they go into topics - is it more of a general overview or a few selected topics in depth?Also, how is the balance PC/Console development, and do they also do mobile development (Droid/iOS)?Do they teach physics as applied to games (I've heard one of the staff is a physicist...)?How is the level of maths, do they waste much time on re-teaching high-school maths...?Many thanks again for your help.
  4. Thank you for your answer. Do you have any details about the differences between MSc Computer Graphics Programming and MSc Games Programming at Hull? From the website it seems like the only difference is one module (and the project). Can I ask why you have decided to study at Hull at not at one of the other schools?
  5. What MSc. courses in the UK are recommended for learning serious game programming/development? I am currently in the final year of my undergraduate degree (Physics and Computer Science) and I am looking to start an MSc in the UK in 2012. So far I have found the following three Skillset-accredited courses: Sheffield - MSc Games Software DevelopmentHull - MSc in Games ProgrammingAbertay - Computer Games TechnologyIt would be much appreciated if anyone with experience in this area could help to compare and contrast these courses; maybe one of you has attended any of these universities or maybe even did one of these degrees? Are there any other courses that are recommended / Should I also consider courses that are not Skillset-accredited (e.g. De Montfort University) Many thanks for you help, Ben
