Learn fundamental concepts to create 3D models

Professional Certificate in
Fundamentals of 3D Visualization

What you will learn

  • Fundamentals of 3D visualization concepts
  • Concept of the third dimension to create realistic 3D
  • Principles of animation such as Stretch and Squash, Timing and Spacing etc.
  • Intricacies of a free and open source 3D animation tool: Blender
  • Online collaboration with students, teachers, and professionals all over the world

Visualizing beyond the two dimensions has become an integral part of the technical domain. Application of the third dimension is useful in many allied domains such as: animation (for entertainment and education), 3D printing, architecture, and game creation. Although these (and many other) domains are wide apart in their application, they can be best explored using a common focal point of 3D visualization.

This program offers insights into key concepts of modeling, texturing, lighting, and animation. In order to create a sustainable skill development lifecycle, Blender, a free and open-source 3D computer graphics software toolset, will be utilized. Blender allows users to acquire and perfect their skills ethically and free of cost.

The courses in this program will include elegantly shot and edited slow paced video tutorials, quizzes, activities, and hands-on assignments.
