Whether used for education or entertainment, computer graphics are utilized in movies, games, and learning tools. In the computer graphics technology program, you'll learn how to create and manage computer graphics for use in a wide range of industries. You'll work alongside other students in computer labs to master graphic techniques, graphic concepts, and management skills. During your senior year, you will take courses in professional practices and contemporary problems in computer graphics. These courses will give you the chance to experience a real-world computer graphics project.
Students can choose to generalize in applied computer graphics technology, choose the concentration in human-centered design and development, or develop more in-depth knowledge and skills in the entertainment and media design areas. With eight areas of specialization to choose from, undergraduate computer graphics students can align their plan of study with their talents.
Students in this program can apply to participate in a five-year combined bachelor's/master's degree program in computer graphics technology.
This program is also offered at the Purdue College of Technology locations in New Albany and Richmond.
