Computer Design, Animation & Game Design


  Computer Design, Animation & Game Design

Students new to this bachelor's degree can complete all of the coursework at Kent State Stark. Students have the option of taking these courses in-person, through web-based sections or a hybrid of the two, based on availability.

Bachelor of Science in Technology

The computer design, animation and game design concentration within the Bachelor of Science degree gives students the skills and academic knowledge necessary to enter the field of computer animation. Designing in virtual environments, computer-aided design, modeling and game design, and through courses in 2D, 3D and experimental animations, students learn theory and practice modern techniques and artistic applications. Drawings and illustrations are brought to life on digital video or film through the effective use of the latest software for capturing and animating hand-drawn or digitally created imagery.

In addition, students experience creative possibilities as they explore artistic options and processes through experimental animation and modeling. Combining these modern theories of visual creation with digital imaging, motion capture, multimedia, computer animation and film production, graduates of this program will be prepared for jobs in modeling and technical illustration, as well as in artistic production, exhibition, broadcast and in the fast-growing field of game design.
