Architectural 3D Visualisation is an extremely popular trend in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) industry. 3D models, animations and walkthroughs provide a realistic, detailed view of buildings and interiors, thus allowing improved communication of a proposed design to developers, engineers, fabricators, architects and clients.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to enter the lucrative AEC industry with capabilities to design and create realistic, lifelike visualisations of buildings and interiors using high-end 3D software. What’s more, they will also be able to import their 3D visualization into Unreal Engine to create walkthroughs that are optimized for virtual reality!Click here for More Course Info
Diploma & Certificate courses in Architectural Design Visualisation
The Course comprises 3 months of Foundation, 3 months of Specialisation, 2 Pro Modules of 3 months each, and a 3-month VR Walkthrough Project module
Architectural Design Visualisation students begin their Diploma Course with FX School’s intensive 3-month Foundation course, which provides a critical introduction to the world of CG Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Art.

Archis AchrekarAdvanced Certificate in Architectural Design Visualisation 2015
The decision of pursuing Architectural Design Visualisation Course at FX School has been of extreme importance to me. I was very keen to get into digital visualisation of architecture & urban environments and this is helping me a great deal in my work. Our faculty, Mr. Atanu Roy is one of the most genuine and committed individual I have ever met and I am very happy that I have had an opportunity to learn from him or rather "learn with him" as he puts it. He gets to the root of complex technical concepts and his skill lies in describing it effortlessly to the student. The sheer interest I have developed here makes me pursue this subject even after I complete my course. I recommend this course to those who want to develop skills to communicate architecture for a variety of application and audiences.
Anirban Sarkar Advanced Certificate in Architectural design Visualisation, 2015
I was never good in bookish education or rather, I could not take any interest in it. I always had a keen interest in doing something new and out of the box. At FX School, I finally found the right direction to channel my passion and it became a turning point in my life. I found a way to frame and present my architectural ideas. FX School doesn’t believe in bookish knowledge, it believes in practicality and making bright futures. I whole-heartedly thank FX School and Mr. Atanu Roy who has played the part of a mentor and is also someone I look up to, for being a part of my sojourn in the race of life.
Priya Singh Advanced Certificate in Architectural Design Visualisation 2015
FX School is the place where I came to know that I do stand somewhere. Here, I discovered my passion. I developed confidence.
Before starting my journey at FX School I was depressed, as I had failed my 12th. It was a tough time for me. Then I got a new start with FX School when I joined the Architectural Design Visualisation course.
The faculty taught me so many things apart from the course.I was taught about professionalism, how to present your work, how to present yourself and how to manage your work and time as well.
For the faculty at FX School, teaching is not just a job but a responsibility. I am really glad to be a part of FX School and to have someone who will guide me all my life.
FX School, thank you so much for helping me to discover myself and giving me this opportunity to express myself.
