Overview

Computer vision, image processing, graphics, games and visualisation have become significant areas within computer science. Technical developments in academia and industry and availability of data capture devices are helping to generate a strong demand for specialist computer science graduates in these areas. Specific applications include games development, movie special effects, image understanding, geometry processing, computer aided design, additive manufacturing, phenotyping of crops, digital preservation of historical relics, automatic driving, and industrial quality control. Researchers from Aberystwyth have been active in all these areas. The degree scheme in Computer Vision, Graphics, and Games offers a sound grounding in the underlying technologies as well as vocational skills that include programming, operating systems, software design, information search and query, data analysis and classification.

The terms ‘Computer Graphics, Vision and Games’ cover a wide range of topics within the computing industry and the modern world. While computer games are the most well-known aspect of this area, what many people do not know is the underlying complexity of a relatively simple application. This course focuses on the programming aspects of various techniques and also on how visual data can be obtained, processed, interpreted, visualised and applied. You will gain a firm foundation in computing skills such as programming, software design, data storage, analysis and classification. You will also learn specialised skills in the areas of vision and graphics, and interact with related areas of study such as intelligent agents and mobile computing.

Career opportunities

A degree in Computer Graphics, Vision and Games will prepare you for a variety of careers in software design, games development, communications and networking, computer applications, web development, IT consultancy and management, systems analysis and development, computer sales and marketing. Following further study, you could also consider teaching or research.
