3D Computer Generated Imagery (Architectural Visualisation) Bournemouth and Poole College of Further Education

Accredited by: Bournemouth University

Our assessment is all coursework based and we operate in a studio environment with small groups of typically 12-15 students. Art is taught throughout, whatever your level, to encourage creativity and visual communication. There is an individual project element to every year which helps you build a good portfolio for future interviews. Our Industry Partners are heavily involved in the course, providing some of our assignment briefs, feedback on presentation panels and guest lectures as well as being influential in the design and development of the course content. This means you get the most up-to-date career-relevant input possible. We offer excellent facilities with 5 hi-spec computer suites with the latest versions of industry standard software and cutting edge resources including two inertial motion capture suits, a hand-held 3D laser scanner, photogrammetry equipment, a green studio and 340-core render farm – all of which are incorporated in our coursework and available to students for use in projects.
