ABOUT THE MAJOR
People everywhere talk about the "cool" effects seen in movies, TV shows and commercials. Animation has gone high-tech and is taking the country by storm. SEDT prepares students for exciting careers in game design and development, special effects in feature films and product design and visualization. Computer animation students learn to use MAYA, the state-of-the-art 3D animation software. MAYA was instrumental in creating such feature films as Shrek, Finding Nemo, and Ice Age. Training in the MAYA Complete 3D animation software includes animation, 3D modeling, rendering and dynamics (special effects). Until now, an education in MAYA was only available in private institutions and four-year universities. So get animated and jump into the 21st century with a degree in computer animation at MDC, SEDT.
