Cogswell Poly Offers Houdini Courses

(September 18, 2001)
Cogswell Polytechnical College has teamed with Side Effects Software, Inc. to bring 3D animation and visual effects education to the Silicon Valley. Through this new relationship, Cogswell offers Houdini, Side Effects Software's 3D animation package in support of Cogswell's digital arts degrees.

"We are delighted to support such a leading education provider in their efforts to build top 3D animation skills in the heart of the Silicon Valley," said Tony Cristiano, General Manager of Side Effects Software U.S. "Worldwide demand for Houdini-trained artists is growing and we are pleased to support Cogswell in fulfilling that demand."

"Cogswell Polytechnical College applauds Side Effects Software for their method of facilitating artistic expression through their flexible Houdini 3D animation software. Houdini enables artists to fulfill their artistic vision and the software provides capabilities for artists to quickly and efficiently revise their work," said Will Paicius, Professor of Computer Graphic Animation at Cogswell Polytechnical College. "Creative problem solving encourages Houdini students to explore solutions in pursuit of art, instead of the push-button ready-made alternatives found in other packages."
