Ubisoft Reflections and EA Criterion visit Bournemouth University and its Games Technology course

During the last couple of weeks we have received visits here at Bournemouth University from two of the biggest games development studios in the UK, the Newcastle-based Reflections (part of the Ubisoft family, makers of the Driver series) and the Guildford-based Criterion (part of the Electronic Arts family, makers of the Burnout series). These visits were predominantly driven by the interest from our BSc Games Technology students (under the Creative Technology framework for which I am the framework leader for) but also the industry's interest in this particular course too.

Both talks were excellent, covering insights of experts from the industry to graduate recruitment tips plus also on occasion very extended and hugely useful to our students Q&A sessions. I am looking forward to more visits like that from other studios (and also of course furthering the relationship with places such as Reflections and Criterion).
