They establish the game art style and look, develop concept art, sculpt, model, texture and animate environments, characters, vehicles and objects. This Computer Games (Art and Animation) (Hons) programme of Glasgow Caledonian University will create graduates who will combine their traditional art skills with the latest creative technology in 3D art and animation and will have the awareness of technological capabilities and limitations of gaming platforms. Both programmes will introduce you to the modern practises of 3D content creation, help you realise your career path and offer you the ability to specialise.
Graduates have gone on to work at Rockstar, Electronic Arts, Sony and Guerrilla Games.
