During the internship program we will go through different aspects of java like control structures, inheritance, polymorphism etc. we will apply all the techniques independently with certain programs and at the end major projects will be assigned to the students.

Some of the projects may involve:

Project 1: Chatting Tool Box The objective is to create a Client Sever connectivity based software using the Java Servlets. Project 2: Database handling The objective is to interact with database i.e.. either Microsoft Access, Sql etc.
Projects: 3D animation awed the world a few years back when it was displayed for the first time on the silver screen. Ever since, the animation industry has grown by leaps and bounds and going by the trends, the growth is expected to be quicker than ever before.

Animation is not restricted to cartoon characters alone. Animation finds its use in various fields from Medicine to Education; and even Architecture and Aviation industries use this incredible art for putting up clearer images and helping the trainees learn.

The stage is set for 3D animation and the industry is ready to embrace anyone who has the guts to experiment and the talent to put up an interesting show. If 3D animation interests you, do not hesitate to take it as a career option.

3D animation is the best way to present our thoughts to the audience & MAYA is one of the best tools to do it.

Project details: Students will be creating completely rigged & textured character with walk cycle & body dynamics’ animation of the character.

If that's what you wanna do go for it, but also keep in mind you can learn most things on the internet for free if you have the time to search around for it. $166 for the course is not bad, but it also depends on your financial situation. here in Australia it would be 10x that price.
