Curriculum

The Curriculum of 3D Animation, Games and Interactive Environments Cycle is structured into 2,000 hours and divided into 2 courses.

The 2-year study plan with 2,000 hours incorporates 370 hours of Workplace Training in the 2nd year. This training can also be combined with the HND in Creative Media Production by taking two additional optional subjects per year and obtaining an additional British University Degree of extraordinary value that will provide you with knowledge of Game Design and Production. Additionally, by studying the Vocational Training Cycle together with the HND, you can access the University Degree in Game Design and Development and complete it in just two more years.

During the first course you will learn in a hands-on, practical way, and with no prior knowledge, the basics of artistic drawing, which will help you to continue with the course in digital drawing, and apply this knowledge to two-dimensional animation.

You will also begin to work with a 3D environment, doing modelling, texturing and animation. Finally, you will learn the basics of programming, making 2 video games during the course.

In addition, you will start your professional insertion by creating your own portfolio. A necessary tool for demonstrating your work to any company.

Subject Semester ECTS credits Hours
2D and 3D Element Animation 275
Color, Lighting, and Finishes for 2D and 3D 200
Design, Drawing, and Modeling for Animation 200

Development of Interactive Multimedia Projects 235

In the second course you will delve into 3D modelling and animation techniques, and create a 3D video game. In addition, you will learn digital sculpture, editing and post-production techniques, and 3D rigging.

Finally, you will develop your final project at the same time as you do your training in a work centre specialised in your preferences as a professional. The portfolio you started in the first year will be fundamental towards getting the most out of your training with the company.
