Computer Graphics prepares students to work as designers for companies that specialize in the graphic communications, multimedia and corporate sectors. These include magazines, newspapers, packaging companies and manufacturers of other print products. Computer graphics designers can also work for website producers and electronic product manufacturers. They can also be self-employed.
