Department of Computer Graphics Technology

The Department of Computer Graphics Technology prepares visually oriented students for careers in creating and managing the production of computer graphics within a wide range of industries. Students work collaboratively in computer labs to master graphic techniques, concepts and management skills.

Students begin their study in the CGT-Freshman-Experience (CGTF) that serves as a foundation for the computer graphics technology baccalaureate program. Before applying for admission into the professional program, a student must successfully complete all courses in the CGTF with a minimum of 2.5.

After successful completion of the CGTF, students continue mastering generalized concepts and skills in applied computer graphics technology or develop more in-depth competencies in areas such as computer animation, construction graphics, interactive multimedia development or virtual product integration.

The B.S. in CGT program is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATME), www.atmae.org.
