University of Abertay faces merger proposal

Dare To be Digital sponsors asked to explore merge with Dundee University

Dundee's University of Abertay, known for its commitment to games and the Dare to be Digital competition, may be merged with Dundee University.

According to ScottishGames both universities have already received government communications asking them to investigate the logistics of such a scheme.

It's so far unclear how this could effect the institution's comprehensive gaming curriculum.

Abertay offers undergraduate courses in Game Design & Production Management, Computer Games Technology  and Computer Game Applications Development, as well as postgradute courses in Computer Games Technology and Games Development.

It also sponsors the Dare to be Digital  video game development competition, where students work at the university to create a prototype game, which is then shown at the Dare ProtoPlay event.
