DECO1008 3D Modelling was undertaken as part of the core subjects in Design Computing. It taught us the basics of 3D modelling, using Maya.
Tutorials in Labs allowed us to practice such basics as lighting, bump-mapping, modelling, photo-realism, and uv-mapping. Programattic (e.g. recursive) Modelling seemed intriguing.
Overall, though the course was inadequately taught (with terribly outdated and non-customized materials) - there were plenty of resources on the web. The subject-matter of 3D modelling itself was fun and interesting.
