If you want to create the amazing visual elements that are seen in games, our Games Art degree will provide you with the skills you need for a career as a 3D Artist. The course covers everything from environment and character creation, to props, vehicle and weaponry design.
Throughout the course, you’ll study 3D modelling, digital sculpting, texturing, observational drawing and character design. You’ll also learn how to apply the fundamentals of Art and Design theory and contextual art studies to your practical art skill development. You will also be encouraged to develop your own artistic workflow.
We are members of TIGA, and Epic Games sponsors our state-of-the-art games design studio. Games companies come to the University for development days and training, so you’ll be able to build contacts for your future career.
