Diploma in Animation - KPTM Ipoh

Animation is pure imagination. Underpinned by a strong understanding of design, filmmaking and compelling storytelling, this programme introduces you to the art and practice of animation. Learn to design and develop characters and worlds from concept to finished art and create arresting graphical motion and believable character performances. But it’s also a profession where technical expertise and application is as important as raw talent, and this is where we come in.

Our Diploma In Animation is all about building your character and credentials by giving you hands-on experience in 2D & 3D modelling, included with rigging, design, textures, lighting, rendering, and compositing. Basically, everything you'll need to create the career you want.

Throughout the programme, you'll explore each aspect of animation in detail with the guidance of expert lecturers. You'll be working on cutting-edge software like Maya, ToonBoom and Adobe Creative Suite to help bring your ideas to life, as well as learn collaborative and project management skills – all within a world-class, studio-based learning environment.
