In this course, you’ll develop the creative thinking and production skills that are highly valued by the games industry. You’ll explore games art and design production concepts and processes, use industry-standard tools and techniques and learn about animation, 3D modelling and how to design mobile apps.
In your second year you’ll start to specialise your degree, choosing a direction in concept design, games design or production art. Your final year includes a games project unit, where you’ll work closely with programmers and other artists to complete creative projects.
You’ll learn from lecturers including Simon Allen who has worked as an animator for Pixar, Jason Trevenen who has worked as a concept artist for Disney, and Brad Power who has worked as the lead designer at the Perth studio of AAA developer Interzone Games.
To expand your knowledge and skills even further, you can combine Games Art and Design with another major, such as Graphic Design, Web Communication, Screen Production, Japanese, Communication and Media Studies or Sound.
You will graduate as a highly trained games designer, concept artist or production artist working in 3D modelling and animation. You can also extend your career prospects in Games Art and Design through studying our Graduate Diploma in Games and App Production or Graphic Design Honours degree.
