More than 70 pieces of student artwork will be judged with the top three pieces to receive the honor of “Best of Show” that evening. In addition, all pieces will be available for a silent auction with the proceeds benefiting the Animation Imagineers Club, a campus club for students majoring in computer design, animation and game design. The exhibit also includes artwork submitted by high school students who are members of the 12 area high school Cyber Clubs.
Computer design, animation and game design engineering technology is one of the fastest growing majors at Kent State Tuscarawas. It is the largest major offered by the engineering technology program. Since the program’s launch in 1995, it is the only associate degree of its kind offered in Ohio. Students can also earn a bachelor’s degree in computer design, animation and game design at Kent State Tuscarawas.
Developed by Kamal Bichara, Ph.D., director of the engineering technology program, the computer design, animation and game design major appeals to students who enjoy combining visual design, art and technology.
