What Optical 3D Can Offer Crewe Engineering & Design UTC Students


Optical 3 will be offering work placements for students who have a flair for computer graphics and a good understanding of basic engineering principles. They will need to be skilled, versatile, reliable and able to work well within a small team. They will need strong creative skills, an ability to work and be trained in using current industry standard software, using a wide variety of media, and to combine this with excellent technical understanding and an eye for detail.

Students will experience the day to day running of a busy CGI studio along with being able to contribute towards potential projects.

For the students who have proved more successful in the past, we have been able to offer them short term contracts after graduation depending on the type and volume of work that we are producing at the time and we currently employ degree level graduates in Technical & Information Illustration and Computer Character Animation.
