I have just completed my fourth year at Glasgow Caledonian University, where I studied BSc (Hons) Computer Games Software Development. This course has taught me the fundamentals of object orientated software development (OOP) through the use of C# and C++. As well as parallel computing, artificial intelligence, software modelling, 3D mathematics and graphics programming, and serious game design.
Prior to my time at Glasgow Caledonian University I studied Computer Games Development at James Watt College, Greenock. Due to excellent understanding and demonstration of games development and design methodologies within a practical manner I graduated from James Watt College with a distinction in the field of computer games development.
Due to my voluntary efforts and academic background within computer games development I was a recipient of an IGDA Scholarship to the Develop 2012 video games conference. IGDA Scholarships are awarded to exceptional students within game development disciplines. Due to this scholars are given access all areas to the conference in question and events such as studio tours, mentoring, and meetings with leading in the games industry.
