ABCya is the leader in free educational computer games and mobile apps for kids. Students with UAT’s Game Art & Animation degree master all levels of game development to create 3D art assets for multiple video game platforms. With a degree in animation, they learn to incorporate the artistic principles used in 3D video games art asset creation such as color theory, lighting, shading, anatomy, life drawing, perspective, scene staging, modeling low polygon and high polygon, 3D mesh topology, texturing, rigging, hand key character and prop animations, as well as motion capture and facial animation.
Because of the nature of the profession, computer technology is one of the most significant testing grounds for alternative education experiments. In the tech industry, a degree is often considered less important than experience and the plain ability to do the job, so tech companies tend to have much less stringent education requirements than other industries.
Software development and computer science are moving in exciting new directions. In order to capture these movements, today’s software developer needs to stay abreast of these changes with UAT’s masters in computer science. Students in this software engineering masters degree program learn the algorithmic structures, code metaphors and programming languages being developed to capture new architectures and paradigms in software development.
If you’re computer savvy and looking to gain an income using your technical skills, a degree in web design may be perfect for you. No matter what the industry, all businesses seem to have corresponding web pages today. It’s essential for people to be able to find out more information online. As more and more websites require mobile touchscreen accessibility, web designers must also be able to code sites that are compatible with mobile devices. Businesses need the creativity and technical skills of web designers now more than ever.
Students who transfer to the junior year of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program, specializing in Computer Technology, are expected to have completed their freshman and sophomore years at a community college or similar institution and received their associate’s degree in a program of computer studies (i.e. computer science, computer technology, computer software, computer programming, etc). Students who have an equivalent associate’s degree in science, or in various fields of engineering, are also eligible.
