The fastest-growing section of the art program is the exciting discipline of computer animation. Students learn to prepare two and three-dimensional art for animation films, gaming, video, advertising, architecture, medical research, and web design in the most comprehensive and advanced courses available in this region.

Three on-campus laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art networked computers and post-production units as well as 2D/3D and editing software.
