If you are interested in creating and deploying 3D games, the Certificate IV in Digital and Interactive Games is for you.

The course has been designed from the ground up to take advantage of the latest industry software and development environments, giving you the skills you need to design, create, develop and deploy games to your target platform and app stores.

Essential skills will be employed to give you the ability to create games such as massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs), first-person shooters, racing games, real-time strategy games, third-person shooters, role playing games, side scrollers and more.

You will acquire skills to develop 3D models, understand the pipeline for creating assets for a game engine and discover state-of-the-art techniques to get your assets game-ready.

Facilitation will include techniques that apply to all types of 3D artwork including:
- character design
- prop design
- environment design
- animation
- visual effects.

You will learn to navigate the 3D space and manipulate 3D objects, review geometry and modelling, use 3D sculpting software to model and texture 3D game assets, and learn how to apply colour and texture to 3D surfaces.

This course will provide you with real-world experience and knowledge about the game industry, and tips for getting your foot in the door.
