3D Animation, A.A.S.


Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - By Degree Type Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - By Degree Type

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.

Because the 3D Animation work environment demands highly advanced skills, it is recommended that students consider this program as an entry point to continued higher education rather than as a terminal degree. Students should consider transfer plans with universities that offer Bachelors of Applied Science and/or Bachelors of Applied Technology Degrees.
