**Why study this course?** The Games Modelling, Animation and Effects BSc is a cutting-edge and innovative undergraduate degree that will develop your computer graphics skills, both artistically and technically. You'll learn about subjects including modelling, rigging, animation, texturing, lights/cameras, visual effects (VFX) and rendering. Successful completion of the course will prepare you for a range of positions from concept, technical, texture and VFX artist to character/model builder, animator and graphic designer. In the most recent (2015-16) Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months. **More about this course** This undergraduate degree in games modelling, animation and effects will enable you to gain an excellent education in the area of games development, with an emphasis on computer graphics (CG). As well as exploring concept concept artwork, 2D/3D assets, character models, animation, textures, VFX and rendering, you'll also develop problem solving, teamwork and communications skills, and an awareness of the ethical responsibilities that a technical artist must consider. Each module has been designed with your career in mind. You’ll gain a solid knowledge of CG and a high level of appropriate techniques and relevant tools so that you can design and build computer games. The course also allows you to specialise and explore areas of personal interest, for example those used by modellers, animators, texture and visual effects artists, and build up a significant portfolio of work. Opportunities exist to work on projects that simulate real industry team work while working on industry assignments and you can also collaborate with Computer Games Programming BSc (Hons) students on various projects. Visit our website for creative technology, Think Make Play, to see some fantastic work from our students. **What our students say** "The biggest surprise was that the course prepared me so well for other roles in the digital media industry other than just animator. It prepared me unexpectedly for work in the visual special effects industry where knowledge and skills in digital animation are so important. I gained skills and knowledge that would allow me to take on roles and responsibilities that I would never have gained exposure to had I just worked strictly as a junior animator and had not gone on to do this degree." Garvey Harris "The course helped me develop crucial skills and techniques that I went on and use in my career. Perhaps the most notable skillset I was taught was the strong fundamentals of animation, both traditional and on a computer…" James Dower
