Your Future Career as a 3D Digital Artist

As a 3D Digital Artist you will be trained as a generalist, but you can also choose to specialize in a field of your choice. You will be able to work in a broad industry fitting many different jobs, for example: animator, character sculptor, technical artist, VFX artist, mocap technician, environmental artist, texture artist, rigger and much more.

CGI is being used in more and more industries, and the demand for talented people is increasing both nationally and internationally. New tech trends are also emerging like VR, AR, Virtual Production and creation of Metaverse – which will further generate new job possibilities in anything from game and movie production to scientific visualization.
