Visual Effects - Teesside University

**Summary**: If you have a passion and aptitude for both the creative and technical side of the visual effects industry, this is the course for you. **Course details**: This integrated master’s course includes advanced and applied and deconstructed technical expertise in visual effects for 3D animation, film, television and physical simulation. The master’s year allows you to deepen your understanding of visual effects in more advanced technical ways, as well as providing a route to advanced degrees (for example, a PhD) and world-leading technical research in the visual effects area. For this reason you are expected to maintain a good grade average throughout your studies. There is a clear focus on the technical simulation and systems side of the visual effects production pipeline. You will learn skills in 3D modelling and surface shader creation, but especially in the technical development of tool plug-ins and implementation of physical simulations in realistic film and TV productions such as particle effects and water. The course contains a programming strand, ensuring you are fully literate in the languages needed to develop and implement leading edge tools and systems for 3D effects animation and simulation, in small or large productions for believable photo-real effects, from the small and often unnoticed to the large and spectacular. **After the course**: You are encouraged to think about your future career from the outset. We have a number of events that develop your employability: our ExpoSeries is integral to your course and is an opportunity for you to interact with employers. You have the opportunity to showcase your work to peers, the public and potential future placements or employers at regular intervals throughout each level of your studies.
