UTS Animal Logic Academy leads in world education rankings
The UTS Animal Logic Academy (UTS ALA) has been awarded top honours for production excellence in 2019 in The Rookies, the respected global ranking system for courses in the creative media and entertainment industries.
The academy, a joint venture between the University of Technology Sydney and the world-leading animation and digital production company Animal Logic, led a world’s-best field in The Rookies’ categories of Mobile – Production Excellence and Immersive Media – Production Excellence.
The Rookies rankings focus on the quality of projects submitted to the Rookie Awards as teams. Each project received a score from the judging panel and contributed to the academy’s overall production excellence score.
Students also develop interactive projects in small teams with interactive and emerging media in session 2 of the accelerated, 12-month master’s qualification. Recent projects includes an educational History game Xploro, the virtual reality project TerraChi, and the mixed reality prototype Rear Windows.
“The recognition from The Rookies is a testament to our extremely talented students and the dedicated teaching team of industry professionals that challenge conventional thinking in order to develop high-fidelity, innovative projects using emerging media,” said UTS Animal Logic Academy Head Ian Thomson.
The UTS ALA is currently accepting applications for the one-year accelerated Master of Animation & Visualisation as well as candidature for its research and PhD program for 2020.
