Serious games and virtual reality represent a large, and actively growing, industry – the application of modern games technology in a wide range of areas around medicine, training, education, security and beyond. While educational games already represent a multi-billion dollar global industry, the recent growth in virtual reality has seen predictions that this market will grow to $150 billion dollars by 2020 (Techcrunch, April 6, 2015).
The MSc provided my design practice with the skills to become a key part of this explosive growth, and potential to become key innovators in this exciting and rapidly developing area. The MSc offered professional development to gain first hand practical programming/scripting experience that was transferable to design, develop and analyse game theory, pedagogy and simulations for a range of application areas and to conduct interdisciplinary research in the serious applications of games technology, particularly in heritage, education and training.
