College of Science and Technology


The Bachelor of Science in Computer Graphics Technology (CGT) program offers two concentrations: Technical Design (TEDS) and User Experience (UEXP). The TEDS concentration focuses on architectural, mechanical, product, and packaging designs. Students in TEDS will be able to help companies and organizations visualize data, generate engineering drawings or graphics, design digital prototypes and quality products, and create efficient architectural structures. Whereas, the UEXP concentration emphasizes true user experience applied to website development, video game creation, 2D and 3D animations, multimedia production, virtual reality (VR), publishing design, logo design, typography, and to create content for marketing or communication. The department labs are equipped with PC and Mac computers, application software, SLR digital cameras, wide format printers, and a package plotter.

Graduates from the CGT major typically secure jobs in a wide variety of companies, organizations, and government agencies that have in-house design and user experience functions, but graduates also focus on their freelance design work and entrepreneurship. Please click here for the CGT-TEDS program curriculum guide and here for the CGT-UEXP program curriculum guide.
