MSc Animation & Visualisation

University of Dundee

Masters Degree , Animation

Course Description

Animation is a creative discipline that engages with a wide variety of mediums and subject areas. Using the tools of 2-D and 3-D computer animation, practitioners are shaping our knowledge and understanding in areas as diverse as digital visual effects, medical imaging, architecture and environmental design, product design and film making. Visualisation skills and methodologies are increasingly applied in the communication of complex scientific and design issues. This expanding field acts as the interface between the public and research communities. MSc Animation & Visualisation represents an opportunity for animators, artists, designers and those with associated experience, to apply and extend their skills and discourse within both animation and visualisation. The programme offers dedicated 3-D and visual effects facilities providing students with a unique opportunity to develop their own visual practice. The programme also encourages a multidisciplinary approach to problem solving with established links to the School of Computing, Medicine and industrial collaborators.
