About the Program:

This program trains entry-level professional designers to work in a variety of career areas that include:  3D animation, film & special effects, and video game industries.    Graduates also have employment opportunities flowing from the increased demand for 3D animation, simulation and visualization in the Aerospace, Life-Bio-Health Science, Defense, Tourism, Education, and Information Technology fields.

Students will learn how to create 3D animations, develop characters to imitate life-like movements, and create environments in which characters can simulate life. Students will develop their traditional art skills, including: drawing, painting, sculpting, and graphic design utilizing Photoshop, Maya, and 3ds Max software.

NOTE: In Fall 2009 the 3D Animation degree replaced Digital Game and Simulation Cinematics for Artists degree plan.
