Our Program

Humber's 3D Modelling and Visual Effects Production certificate program focuses on both the conceptual and the technical, as you learn to master visual techniques to bring ideas to life. You will develop skills in modelling, texturing and lighting, as well as in visual effects, compositing and digital cinematography. We use a teaching process and course structure that requires content created in one course to be used to complete assignments in other courses. This “pipeline” process mirrors that of industry, allowing students to make a seamless transition into a real production environment.

The program is designed by artists for experienced traditional artists and animators who want to either develop or transition their skill sets for employment in the 3D and visual effects industries. Faculty's experience and passion in the gaming, television, and film industries are the driving forces that ensures the program meets the current and future needs of the industry.

NEW JANUARY INTAKE OFFERING - Work your day job, study for your dream job

We are now offering a January intake to this dynamic one-year intensive study certificate. Students will benefit from our streamlined flexible schedule, allowing them to work their day jobs while they study for their dream jobs. Our schedule will have students on campus and in classes three evenings per week (M-T-W) and all day Saturdays. Students will study in our State of the Art labs equipped with the latest Cintiq tablets, tools and software.
