About Abertay University, Scotland, UK

Abertay University, formally the University of Abertay Dundee until 2014, is one of two public universities in the city of Dundee, Scotland. The other is the University of Dundee. In 1872, Sir David Baxter, 1st Baronet of Kilmaron, left a bequest for the establishment of a mechanics' institute in Dundee. As early as 1902 it was recognized by the Scottish Education Department as an educational hub, and was one of the first to be designated a central institution, akin to an 'industrial university'. It continues to have a vocational focus and is associated with Dundee's rise as a Centre for computer games.

Highlights of Abertay University:

  • Abertay was the first University in the world to offer a computer games degree, and the first in the UK to be recognized as a Centre for Excellence in Computer Games Education. In 1999 it developed and continues to host 'Dare to be Digital' the international competition for computer games students.
  • Abertay was also the first to offer a degree in Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures, starting in 2006. According to the results of the Research Excellence Framework 2014 (REF2014) published on 18 December 2014.
  • Abertay was the highest ranked modern university in Scotland for 'research intensity'. According to the Prince town Review 2015, Abertay ranked in the top 25 places in the world to study video game design.
