The Computer Animation Certificate is intended to give students the skills needed to work as a digital animator. The classes required for this certificate will have students learning the most up-to-date animation and video software packages, including 3D Studio Max, Mudbox, Blender, Flash, Premiere Pro and other applications. Intensive hands-on participation will be stressed in creating 3D models, animations, and scenes. Emphasis is placed on practical, real-world application of their skills. Upon certificate completion, students will have multiple short animation projects suitable for a portfolio or demo reel.
