Epic Games announces Unreal Developer Days at Staffordshire University

"We are delighted to be hosting the first in a series of EPIC developer events. This day will also contain training for Staffordshire University staff and students. We should be receiving our copies of the new Unreal Engine 4 as soon as possible and this should make us the first educational institute in Europe to receive the software and have it on site. This is something very unique and will differentiate us from other universities."
