Do you love to bring your own stories, worlds or characters to life? The 3D Design major prepares you for careers in animation and design across the interactive media, visualisation, film, gaming and education sectors.

The major teaches you how to present complex information in visually compelling ways. You’ll learn 3D-modeling processes, animation post-production and composition using industry-standard software. Through project-based learning, you’ll gain an understanding of approaches to storyboarding, object modelling, character design, rigging, texturing and rendering.
