Course Description

3D Animation course - IADT



Do you want to create imaginary and realistic environments and characters and bring them to life? Learn to design, build and create digital worlds and tell the stories of tomorrow using advanced technologies.

This unique course is the first 3D animation undergraduate degree in Ireland. It will allow you to understand the highly artistic and technical practices that are involved in creating characters, stories and worlds using advanced digital technologies.

It builds on IADT’s longstanding BA (Hons) in Animation and our collaboration with Sheridan College, Toronto. Students will learn the fundamentals of digital design, storytelling, animation principles as well as how to build, light and composite animation sequences and stories.

What will I do?

Learn both advanced technical and creative skills to
understand 3D animation pipelines, including character,
design, world building, animation principles, lighting,
rendering along with other specialised areas

Develop the critical thinking skills and individual point of
view that will distinguish you as an artist and thinker

Learn from real-world experiences through live projects,
work placements, group projects and collaboration with
peers in a variety of ways

In Year 3, there is an opportunity to study abroad under the Erasmus+ programme, or to do an industry placement in Ireland or abroad.

Future careers

Our graduates will be equipped with the creative, technical
and production expertise to be able to choose from multiple
pathways on graduation, either directly into the animation,
film & tv, games, motion graphics and the visual effects
industries, to engage and create using new immersive
technologies or to post graduate studies. This course will lead
to a career in the dynamic Irish or International animation
industry.
