Computer graphics schools

Well, I will soon graduate on Faculty of Computer and Information science and I am interested in how many people here study on those special computer graphics schools. I would like to know their experience, what are the differences with normal computer faculties, what do you learn there, how long do they take, are they hard to do, and how leading computer game corporations (Valve, BioWare, Bethesda, EA, Sony, Ubisoft and all other) think of such studies. I am also interested if there are any of such schools in Europe. I searched around a little and found out that most of them are in USA.

Thanks. :slight_smile:

I don’t have any direct experience with any of this, but I can tell you working for big companies like that is no easy task, most of them are looking for a minimum of 2-3 years work experience in their area for example:



And you will need to be fluent in a few commercial products, no gimp, no blender (photoshop, maya/3ds max). As for graphics schools, they will be expecting some educational background in the area on paper (dam that paper :(). I’m sure there are lots of these schools around, you just gotta find them :P. Good luck
