Digital Design Overview

Wenatchee Valley College is now offering a certificate of completion in digital design, the first certified program of its kind in Eastern Washington.

Developed in concert with local and regional advisers, the digital design program combines industrial technology and art to create a training program for students interested in careers in entertainment design and advanced manufacturing. The program also provides students with technical and transfer options.

Digital design provides students with a strong fine art and technical foundation in both 2D and 3D design. With an emphasis on computer graphics with multiple software platforms, graduates will be equipped for entry-level positions in entertainment design and for visualization positions in architecture, engineering and medical fields. These positions include 3D modeler, texture artist, production artist, digital graphics specialist or CAD assistant. Using the guiding artistic concepts and principles learned in the program, students will culminate their studies by creating a professional portfolio.

Students interested in entering the program should work closely with the program adviser to ensure the proper sequencing of classes.
