The growth of digital animation continues unabated. Movies, video games, advertising, applications and web content are the main areas where animation is used today.

Hundreds of animated films have been made in the last year. Despite the large size of this market, it has already been surpassed by the video game industry. The profits from this industry in Spain are expected to exceed 1.4 billion in 2020, this figure shows the great importance of this sector in terms of economy.

Nowadays, not only professional programmers develop videogames. Children start to develop their first games when they are still in school or college; they need better training in order to be able to find work that involves the activities they are passionate about.

In addition to these industries there are other fields that are growing progressively such as advertising and the creation of web applications and content.

The growth in all these branches makes it necessary to train specialists with skills in digital animation. Any company that wants to grow and increase its profits needs to rely on these professionals to make adequate use of the resources that this technology provides them with. In fact, Digital Animation professionals find work easily as they are needed by private and public organizations who wish to become digitalized.

The Master and Expert in Digital Animation gives our students the skills they need to have a successful professional career. One of our students who completed this degree is Antonio Martín, winner of an Oscar for “Gravity”.
