Computer Graphics & Design A.S. Degree

Three dimensional modeling, rendering and working drawings are the core digital graphic processes for the CGD program and these processes can be applied in the design fields of character and sets, architectural, product, mechanical, interior, furniture and jewelry. Throughout the program, a student can place emphasis on any one core graphic process. Students learn the problem solving approach and structure to the various fields of design.

Students can both broaden and deepen their advanced concentration using primary software (RHINO and 3-D Studio Max) and secondary support software (AutoCad LT and Adobe PhotoShop).

CGD 2 2D/3D Technical Computer Graphics I 4 units

CGD 4 2D/3D Technical Computer Graphics II 4 units

CGD 8 Computer Graphics Application I 4 units

CGD 9 Computer Graphics Application II 4 units

CGD 110 Computer Graphics Lab 4 units

Total Units for Major: 20 UNITS

Plus completion of general education requirements units vary

Total Units Required for A.S.: minimum of 60 UNITS
