Dublin, Ireland's Trinity College, which already offers courses that teach students about the core technologies driving the game industry, has announced that it will offer a new master's degree in computer and video game technology later this year. According to a new BBC report, the degree aims to prepare students for careers in the gaming industry with a one-year postgraduate course covering disciplines such as graphics, artificial intelligence and real-time animation. The course, which is supported by Microsoft and was developed in collaboration with “top gaming companies,” currently has 25 openings to be filled by students holding a 2:1 undergraduate degree in computer sciences or a related subject. According to course director Dr. Steven Collins, the new degree is “proving very popular.” "Interactive entertainment is one of the fastest growing and most exciting areas of global industry right now," commented Collins. "If we can continue to grow the skills and knowledge available in Ireland in key areas, building on our research strengths, we have the ability to make Ireland a specialised hub for this business."
