3D Animation and Visualisation

In 3D animation and visualisation studies the focus is on creating still images, animations, visual effects and real-time graphics using 3D tools. Courses on photography, 2D graphics, traditional art and visual design are also included in the 3D curriculum. The ability to work in 3D environments and the skills in visual storytelling are important in 3D studies.

The different phases in 3D graphics production such as 3D modeling, texturing, creating and rigging 3D characters, creating real-time 3D environments, rendering and compositing are taught making exercises in long and intensive courses that include a lot of teamwork. In many courses, for example in game projects, there are also students from other degree programmes participating in 3D production, simulating a real-life work environment.

After the 3D studies the students are able to work in many areas of visual production, such as in game industry, character animation, architectural and product visualisation, vfx industry, scientific visualisation and advertising.

Work done by 3D visualisation students can be viewed at Metropolia 3d game reel.

The Bachelor’s Degree in 3D Animation and Visualisation can be obtained through full-time study in the daytime.

3D Animation and Visualisation teaching takes place in Helsinki Hämeentie 161
