UK university 'committed to working with the industry'

Tiga adds Bournemouth Uni to member list

Bournemouth University has become the latest member of games industry trade body Tiga, the college has announced.

The university offers a BSc in games technology, though it is not known how much of the course is based on study as opposed to practice – the latter being something widely seen as a priority for the UK games industry.

Dr Christos Gatzidis, a lecturer, said Bournemouth University joined Tiga because it is “committed to working with the industry to further enhance our courses and create benefits for our students”.

He added: “We would love to speak to Tiga members about opportunities for guest lectures, research collaboration and student placements.”
