Summary

This Master’s in 3D computer animation is the perfect launch-pad for a career in a wide range of disciplines, including concept design, character and creature animation, modelling, lighting, rigging, texturing, compositing and simulation.

The course will help you acquire the skills needed to work in a number of areas where computer animation is applied, including films, animated features, computer games, television production, commercials, illustration, scientific visualisation, flight simulation, virtual environments, architectural visualisations and interactive media.

We enjoy very strong links with industry, due largely to the ubiquity of NCCA graduates in the film, game and television industries. We host regular visiting practitioners lecture series where you'll be able to learn about the 2D and 3D industry from practicing artists and companies, as well as attend regular Masterclasses from professionals. Over the past five years we have attracted some of the best Visual Effects, Animation and Games studios from around the world to present to our students.

We’ve created a professional studio environment where you'll be provided with your own workstation which is accessible 24/7. Facilities also include a full suite of industry standard 2D and 3D software, a full Motion Capture studio, a High-Definition Television Studio and a creative atmosphere in which collaboration with students from other Master’s courses provides a realistic setting to discover what it’s like working with other creative and technical people.

MA 3D Computer Animation is one of three Master's degree pathways created by the National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA). All pathways share a great deal of core teaching, but also have specific pathway teaching. If your primary area of interest is mostly digital effects and moving image theory, then our Digital Effects programme may be a better choice for you. If your application portfolio is mostly technical or programming-based work without much in the way of original artwork, then our Computer Animation & Visual Effects programme may be the better choice.
