Computer Animation and Game Development

Previously named Applied Computer Graphics, Computer Animation and Game Development (CAGD) is the new name for our program focusing on, you guessed it, computer animation and game development! This change was not taken lightly and after much discussion it was decided that this new name will accurately and precisely convey what our program has to offer students interested in this exciting and diverse industry.

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about what our program focuses on and offers students the opportunity to achieve through hard work and perseverance. We welcome any questions you may have about Computer Animation and Game Development so please feel free to contact us at CAGD anytime.
