Bachelor of Design - Animation / Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation

University of Technology Sydney

The Bachelor of Design in Animation gives students with a passion for visual arts, drawing and storytelling the knowledge and hands-on experience required to create animation work that stands out in a global industry. Students learn how to observe the world around them, drawing directly from life to gain inspiration for characters and stories. They discover how to think creatively and develop ideas through multiple stages, focusing on character development, narrative and performance. They also learn the fundamental 2D and 3D animation skills that will bring their stories to life. Taking a trans-disciplinary approach, the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation (BCII) utilises multiple perspectives from diverse fields. Integrating a range of industry experiences, real-world projects and self-initiated proposals, the BCII equips graduates to address the wicked problems, complex challenges and untapped opportunities in today's world. At UTS, students benefit from outstanding industry connections. Across the degree, students have the opportunity to work with live projects, such as VIVID, BEAMS Festival or collaborations with the Australian Quartet. UTS also has strong relationships with leading industry players such as Flying Bark Productions and Animal Logic. The academic team understands that teamwork is at the heart of the animation industry. A studio-led approach creates a high-intensity environment where students learn how to work with their peers in a professional and collaborative atmosphere. The Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation is a combined degree and delivered in accelerated form, so it only takes one year longer than the core professional degree. Students gain leading edge capabilities that are highly valued in the globalised world, including dealing with critical and creative thinking, invention, complexity, innovation, future scenario building and entrepreneurship.
