The degree in computer graphics created by the Haute Ecole Albert Jacquard aims to be in the vanguard of constantly evolving technologies. It widely resorts to experts from the different computer graphics production sectors, and offer students practical experience in adequate labs right from the first year:
- one machine per student,
- work on various platforms (Mac and PC) and on the most widely used operating systems (Windows, MacOS, Linux).
- Students have the opportunity to work in those labs until 10pm, which enables them to integrate what they learn each day without having to invest too early in a very expensive material.
To train professionals in such an evolving context as computer graphics imposes constraints that may seem paradoxical:
- training people who can directly fit into a team and a production line, with all the specialization that this implies,
- and providing them with the general conceptual basis that will allow a career change in the various sectors of computer graphics.
In this respect, the emphasis placed by the Haute Ecole on the interdisciplinary of teams and on the cross-cutting aspect of knowledge and skills has proven to be rewarding: the companies offering our students work placements praise the professionalism of our trainees and the latter are perfectly capable of shifting from the world of computer-generated images to the world of publishing or multimedia.
At the end of their studies, all our graduates must have acquired a range of skills in connection with the main fields of computer graphics:
- typographical rules,
- design of a corporate image and of a professional portfolio,
- creation of a website on a graphical as well as technical level,
- 3D modelling and animation,
- design of a 3D logo,
- creation of an interactive gallery in real time, etc.
These varied and non-exhaustive skills enable the graduates in computer graphics to fit into the various sectors of the graphics industry but also to adapt in a self-reliant and innovating way to the constant and fast evolution of these sectors.
Besides the emphasis put in the training on autonomy, personal research and self-learning enables students to create a final work in which they can display technical mastery in a particular field, but also to become real actors of their future professional career.
