The Computer Animation course that I teach on at GCADT has become one of just 4 courses in the UK to receive accreditation by SKILLSET for its Computer Games Artist strand. We have been officially branded as an institution that provides the best education and training development for people wanting to persue a career as a Computer Games Artist.....COOL!
'Ian Livingstone, Product Acquisitions Director at Eidos, and Chair of Skillset's Computer Games Skills Forum announced the courses accredited by Skillset with the industries endorsement at E3, the Computer Games trade fair held in Los Angeles, CA in 2006.'
This is great news for the Course and most importantly the students. As we are already accredited by Skillset for our Animation we have now become THE ONLY institution in the UK to hold a double Skillset accreditation.
The selected courses are:
BA (Honours) Computer Arts, University of Abertay Dundee
BSc (Honours) Computer Games Technology, University of Abertay Dundee
BSc (Honours) Computer Games Technology, University of Paisley
BA in Computer Animation, Glamorgan Centre for Art & Design Technology
