Abertay University is one of two public universities in the city of Dundee. This institute gained University status in 1994 & launched the world’s first computer games award in 1997. Abertay was also the first to offer a degree in Ethical Hacking, starting in 2006.
“Abertay has been instrumental in building the city of Dundee’s place as a global hub for computing and gaming, a perfect example of a university and business working together for the common good. Students recognize the excellence of teaching more widely across the university, placing it close to the top of the tree among universities across the UK for the second successive year. It achieves all this while at the same time being the most socially inclusive university in Scotland. Truly, a modern university.” – Alastair McCall, editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide.
