Game Design and Digital Animation

The Technical Short Cycle Degree in Game Design and Digital Animation aims at providing higher professional qualifications, as it prepares students to plan, design, and develop games and digital multimedia animations for different environments and platforms, which will enable both assertive and effective communication.

It seeks to favor a solid training on the life cycle of videogame creation, emphasizing aspects like game design, programming with support for several platforms and game engines, narrative and interface, audio and video, 2D and 3D animation, among others. It also favors an eminently practical stance, as shown in the projects included in its syllabus.

The skills acquired in the course will be applied, in a context of curricular work placement, in partner companies that work in the area of video games and animation. This way students will be able to acquire and put into practice the skills they learnt, increase their network of contacts and initiate contact with the corporate culture.
