The first year of the course of Computer Generated Animation deals with the fundamentals, in which one learns about the techniques, the basic tools and the methodology necessary in order to take on the phases of ideation, project design and the realization of a three dimensional image, in addition to projects and works of animation. The cultural disciplines are taught alongside those of a technical and theoretic nature, in order to give the student a solid base to be able to later take on the complexity of the profession. Special attention is given also to the tools necessary for the presentation of projects.

During the second year the study plan foresees acquiring knowledge of specific technical tools such as: techniques of direction, the design of characters, objects and scenery, the techniques and the intricacies of animation.

In addition to the projects, the course looks into the disciplines of a historical-critical nature as well as the basic tools and techniques: social studies, economics, management, software tools to build the project, and technical production knowledge. The thesis project represents a fundamental learning experience of the three year course, in which the student puts into use all of his / her cultural experience, design and technical abilities matured during the three years and foresees the organization of study and work groups around a complex design problem, under conditions which simulate a professional situation.
