Introduction to 3D Modelling and Texturing

In this course students will be introduced to industry standard digital tools for the creation of 3D assets. Students will gain a creative and technical knowledge and understanding of approaches and methodologies essential for the production of 3D assets for computer animation, visual effects, games, augmented reality and emerging media.

Course code

Qualifications are made up of courses. Some universities call these papers. Each course is numbered using six digits.
