Local college students get a taster of computer game design

A masterclass day was held for around 50 students from Grimsby’s Franklin College, North Lindsey College and Lincoln College to give them an insight into what it would be like to study computing, science or maths at University.

The day was a great success, with Lincoln College especially happy with the sessions that fitted nicely with their curriculum.

From computing to physics, life sciences, biochemistry and pharmacy, the day took students into science labs, game playing and theoretical presentations.

Computer game students got to test out the latest ultimate game development platform ‘Unity’.

Trying out the system allowed students to see how games are put together, how we support our students in developing this skill and how to put it into practice to make their own game.

The sessions on a masterclass day really aim to reflect what a real lecture would entail in Higher Education.

Students were encouraged to get involved, ask questions and really get a feel of the courses available and university lectures in general.

Book on to an Open Day at the University of Lincoln today

Another successful open day!

The School of Computer Science was pleased to welcome prospective students and parents to the University open day on saturday. Demonstrations from members of the Computing Society and the Community Game Project gave visitors a taste of some of the activities students in the School are able to do. The next big event will be the Applicant Open Day in early 2012. All applicants to our courses will be invited for a day in the School and to take part in activities and interviews. Watch this space!
