Abstract: A case study of a computer games engineering course is presented. The course has been designed with close input from industry and is achieving a high rate of success in the number of graduates being recruited by the target industry. The organisers of the course have extensive experience in both the software engineering industry, and in delivering academic teaching. These experiences are combined so that commercial software development practices, technologies and philosophies are adopted throughout the delivery of the academic course. The paper discusses the specifics of how and why this was achieved, and uses the Game Engineering course as an exemplar for encouraging the adoption of commercially inspired techniques within the teaching of software engineering and computer science more generally.
