About Computer Animation Technical Arts at Bournemouth University

The course is taught within our National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA) and combines the study of art, animation techniques, applied maths and computing, needed to satisfy the demands of modern computer animation, film, VFX and games production.

If you want to be able to create art and animation using computer code and be able to describe technical ideas using film and animation, this is the course for you. This course produces graduates who now work all over the world, as technical artists/directors, software producers and games developers in some of the leading animation and production houses, software houses, and computer game and digital media companies. This includes graduates who’ve gone on to win Oscars such as Mark Ardington.

  • Technical Art/Direction is the practice of using art/animation and computing/maths to solve aesthetic problems. This course is a unique combination mix of art and science, reflecting practice relevant to the production of computer graphics and animation for a range of industries and applications
  • You'll have access to brand new specialist facilities including a new green screen and motion capture studio, as well as animation laboratories, equipped with industry-standard software
