The Bachelor’s degree in Animation Design provides a university degree focusing on employability, entrepreneurship and artistic and technical skills in computer animation (2D and 3D).

  • differentiate and value the theoretical and specific side of animation
  • combine traditional animation and 3D animation (technology and basic methodology by means of freehand realisations, 2D computer-assisted animation, pre-production and post-production computer techniques, direction and production, 3D specialisation)
  • integrate the animation industry
