Abstract

Computer Graphics - Engineering Animation study program got certified at the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad, University of Novi Sad, Serbia in December 2010. The study program consists of Undergraduate Academic Studies (UAS) that last 4 years (8 semesters), Master Academic Studies (MAS) that last a year and Doctoral Academic Studies (DAS) that last 3 years. The first generation of students enrolled in 2011 and this generation finished their UAS and graduated with an engineering degree in Computer Graphics. Now they are studying at MAS and the first student received a master degree in September 2018. UAS comprise 48 subjects, 37 compulsory subjects and 11 elective positions with a choice of several subjects, while MAS comprise 11 subjects with three elective positions. This article shows the curriculum of UAS, MAS and DAS, with the list of subjects, the number of classes for each subject and European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) for these Curricula. A general division of our study program would be into two parts: one in which students learn all the techniques and software needed for digital production of animated films and visual effects and the other which is primarily focused on the processing or manipulation with pictures. In this paper, we will present our study program Computer Graphics - Engineering Animation which is prepared for the third accreditation cycle in 2019 in the Republic of Serbia.
