The Department of Computer Animation is dedicated to using the most current technology to provide our students with as many advantages as possible in their work. This, coupled with our relationships with leading software and hardware development companies such as Pixar, Alias, Sony, and IBM, ensures you’ll work with the latest advances in software technology as well as emerging hardware developments. In addition to learning the technology, you’ll learn the important aspects of concept development and story development. Animation is about communication through movement, so it’s critical to have a great idea to communicate. Our award-winning student work is universally well-received because it’s not only technically sound, but grounded by unique designs and interesting stories.
