Course Overview

This cutting-edge degree can lead you into a career in one of the most imaginative, innovative and technically sophisticated fields of design – 3D design and animation. The course content revolves around a core of visual communication design and specialised electives that you can pick from a range of disciplines, including Film and Video, Interaction Design and Motion Design. Guided by industry leaders, you’ll develop modelling and 3D design skills – including texture creation, lighting and original stylistic visual approaches – that will let you create photorealistic and animate visualisations. You’ll use your ever-growing digital expertise to present an original design outcome while collaborating with other students. Together you will plan a project from start to finish – through the creation of the animation to the development of a management plan that reflects industry processes. To gain the most current hands-on experience, you can apply for an internship with a professional 3D design and animation studio, and have the opportunity to work on a live project for a real client. In your final year, as well as refining your animation skills, you will develop your professional 3D design and animation portfolio, so you are ready to start your career in an industry where you can unleash your creativity and your technical know-how every working day.
