Course Description
The Digital Animation degree programme's structure is modelled after the practical processes of the animation production pipeline. Students are taught to apply research to concept in order to create engaging storylines, powerful content, and memorable character designs, beginning with a strong foundation in theoretical understanding and creative thinking projects. 
These abilities are then honed through intensive technical training in the necessary 3D production skills and techniques, as well as expertise in creating time-based media, video and audio production, video compositing, and film studies.



Throughout the digital animation degree programme, students will be required to complete a number of animation projects that will teach them effective research methods and applications, conceptualization and problem-solving abilities, and proficient presentation techniques. Students in this programme will be educated on the laws pertaining to content development, copyrights and intellectual property rights, professional ethics, and best practises, in addition to creative and technical knowledge, to ensure that graduates are adequately equipped to excel in this exciting creative industry of Animation, Film and Post-production.
