STEP educational process is practice based . We do not have boring lectures; our students are not required to write lecture summaries. All study materials are available on a modern and convenient online platform. Student can study at any place and at any time.
By choosing this direction, you will not only become a certified graphic designer, illustrator or 3D animator, but also develop your own portfolio that will help show your talent to a future employer. The ability to think creatively and visualize your own ideas will make you an invaluable professional and help you choose the right vector in shaping yourself as a professional designer.
Less theory, more practice! We clearly know that to be successfully employed, you need to have strong practical skils. Through creative tasks, develop your product design from zero to the final launch, enabling a successful start in this area.
Why does the program lasts for 2.5 years, not just 3 months?
Often short courses promise to train a beginner into a qualified professional in just 3-4 months. This is either a lie or an incompetent statement. In such a short period of time, one can learn some basics, but not serious practical skills. After such courses, designers will only be able to perform simple and low-paid tasks and need to learn more on their own in order to advance, constantly filling gaps in this basic education. Many self-taught designers regret that they did not receive fundamental education at the very beginning of their careers. Our professional "Computer Graphic and Design" program covers all the necessary subjects for a professional designer. The program is designed for 2.5 years, or 5 terms. We are confident that this is the right duration to gain the skills and necessary experience to become a high in-demand professional designer
