This certificate program prepares students with fundamental skills for entry-level positions in the digital 3D modeling and animation industry. This program is a stepping stone to the associate's degree in 3D animation. Students will learn:
- visual perception of 3D form and shape,
- surface mapping and lighting,
- basic 3D animation and
- motion graphic composition.
This program is geared towards students who wish to take strictly animation courses. This often includes students who are returning to school for retraining and students who already have degrees and want specific software training.
This is a high demand, high skill and high wage program as defined by the Michigan Community College Network.
