We offer 4 year Bachelor Degree program in Animation & Gaming. Certificate issued by Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University (JNAFAU).

Introduction

This course provides a firm foundation to game art like modeling Game Characters, level designing, texturing etc. and also to modern software engineering techniques used within the design & development of computer games to ensure you are well placed to take on a role within this dynamic and expanding industry.

Course Description

The BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) course in Animation and Gaming is a vehicle to learn the concepts of game development. From visual storytelling to modeling, texturing, lighting, rigging & animation, to audio, user interface & game level design this course covers basics of drawing, the technical details of animation and use of graphic design. One of the core elements of the course is the Artificial Intelligence module, which allows the developers to create an artificial neural pathway and a decision-making environment within a game. Other important elements such as Game scripting and Game Project management deal with the programming and planning aspects of developing games. Equally important is the need to develop the non-technical skills of planning and executing a project as a part of a team – something explored in detail in the game project management module.
