Course content

Computer Animation is prevalent right across moving image media. It is used in feature films, television dramas, natural history programmes on television, computer games, advertising commercials, corporate advertising and training, education and many other outlets.

This master's programme is about learning and developing new skills, encouraging your creativity, and experimentation, among many other things.

Computer animation is usually fun to watch, fun to plan and fun to do. Whether you consider yourself to be artistic, more inclined towards the technical, or anywhere in-between, computer animation has a broad reach and has a career path for most who wish to join the computer animation industry.
