During the first semester of their sophomore year, students start modeling in 3d with the program MAYA.
They first learn to wireframe and model, then map surfaces, and finally create small animations.
In the next two semesters, students take lighting, modeling and game design. They create group animations and finally in their last year they design portfolio pieces on their own and at internship sites.
