Durham’s tech history
Durham is known universally for its world top 100 university, which is one of the best in the UK. Its computer sciences department is leading research into everything from 3D visualisation technology to the computation power of the internet, using some of the latest tech in the industry.
In terms of tech, one of the university's leading alumni is Sir Peter Ogden; co-founder of one of the UK’s biggest IT firms, FTSE 250 company Computacenter. Durham is also home to Synapptic, one of the leading names behind smartphones for the blind.
And finally, when it comes to online gaming it doesn’t get much bigger than the Unreal 4 engine; and the leading developer behind it is Durham-based Pitbull Studios, part of Epic Games (who you can thank for Infinity Blade – the first iOS game to run on the Unreal Engine), Borderlands, XCOM and the rest).
