What will you learn?
A Master of Environment Artist in Unreal Engine is an advanced study program that focuses on the creation of virtual worlds and interactive environments for video games and virtual and augmented reality experiences. During the program, students use Unreal Engine, one of the most popular video game creation tools in the industry, to design and build immersive and realistic environments. They also learn advanced modeling, texturing and lighting techniques to create high-quality environment assets.
The curriculum in this type of master’s degree can include topics such as creating terrain, foliage, water, sky and weather, lighting environments and handling shadows and reflections, creating materials and textures, optimizing performance, and collaborating with other artists and game designers. Upon completion of the program, students are prepared to work as Environment Artists in the video game and virtual reality industry, and have advanced skills in creating real-time environments and using Unreal Engine.
2-hour sessions always focused on learning and the practical application of knowledge relevant to the professional world.
The development of software or video games is typically managed using Agile methodology, utilizing SCRUM and Kanban to simulate a 100% real-world environment.
Each instructor not only has a solid academic background but also excels in their professional field. These active professionals bring the freshness of real-world experience, constantly updating their knowledge to provide students with an authentic and up-to-date understanding of market demands.
At UT-HUB, you’ll find an environment where your talent will thrive, and your ideas will be valued. We offer professional development opportunities, an inclusive working environment, and challenging projects that will allow you to grow and prosper.
This program has been carefully crafted to provide you with a comprehensive approach to key concepts and practical tools, so that, with the combination of both, you can achieve success in your professional career.
Acquire the basics for the proper creation of materials for landscape use, automatically populate terrains with vegetation, create post-processing materials, and implement textures and materials from Bridge. We will also work on creating specific textures from scratch using the Substance suite.
Apply the general principles of concept to production, employing various blocking techniques in design such as form, silhouette, perspective, and color. This includes devising color palettes, props, and lighting.
Lighting plays a crucial role in any project. We will teach you the fundamental concepts of illuminating different types of scenarios, various types of lights, as well as the different lighting methods offered by Unreal Engine, including the innovative lighting system, Lumen, and Path Tracing.
Explore different tools for creating more complex 3D models. Delve into understanding and resolving topology issues, optimizing UV spaces, and texture packing techniques.
Unreal Engine features an editor that allows us to visualize and edit cinematics in real-time. With Sequencer, you can not only direct cameras but also animate lights, characters, move objects, all thanks to this non-linear editor.
Throughout the training, you will develop an individual project guided by the master’s subject instructors, intended to allow you to create a portfolio piece focused on your specialization. Additionally, there will be a final group project where, alongside peers from other masters offered by UT-HUB, you will develop a multiplayer video game.
We will start by studying the logic that enables the creation of multiplayer levels, from conceptualization and types of multiplayer games to ranking systems. We will also explore ways to propose balanced playable levels by studying the position of each player and analyzing complex flows and paths for them.
