The Visual Effects Art and Design program focuses on providing graduates with a solid foundation in the technical and artistic skills needed to be successful in the visual effects, animation, and CGI industries. You will gain a genuine understanding of storytelling, animation, modeling, compositing, and a solid foundation in artistic techniques.

You will learn colour theory, design fundamentals, life drawing, and industry standard software, and apply this knowledge to the production and animation of 3D characters with appropriate lighting and texturing and visual effects.

Upon graduation, you will be ready for a career in a variety of CGI-based industries including computer animation studios, game development companies, and post-production and special effects studios. You may also find work with industrial design firms and software producers, or for companies that require the production of 3D graphics and animation.
