Animation is pure imagination. Few industries allow you to create what has never been seen before, which is very, very cool. Animation is also a profession where technical expertise and application is as important as raw talent, and this is where SAE come in.

Our Bachelor of Animation is all about building your character and credentials by giving you hands-on experience in 3D modelling, rigging, design, textures, lighting, rendering and compositing. Basically, everything you'll need to create the career you want.

Gone are the times of computer games being purely a source of entertainment. Sure, this is a massive part of the industry, but these days more and more industries are using the positive effects of 'gamification' to encourage behavioural change, particularly in field of healthcare.
