Adam Martin

Senior Lecturer

School of Digital, Technologies and Arts

I’m a Senior Lecturer and Games Designer and have been teaching Games and Interactive Media since 2004. After studying Interactive Arts, I starting my career developing interactive CD-Roms, websites and Flash games. A lot has changed since then and the creative possibilities for technology has evolved almost unimaginably since I first started creating digital work.

I now teach on many game engine related modules, specialising in the Unreal Engine. I bring a combination of both technical skills and creative approaches to my work and encourage students to use a variety of different approaches within their projects.

I am passionate about fostering a climate of collaboration and inquiry within the subjects I teach, providing a creative space for personal and professional development.
