Clint Koch, MS
Faculty, Computer Graphics Technology
Clint received his BS from Purdue and MS from IUPUI. While completing his MS, Clint taught part-time for the IUPUI Astronomy program incorporating CG into his course. His thesis project connecting Kinesiology and 3D graphics led to his full time hiring at the Department of Media Arts and Sciences where he was a full time Lecturer and Clinical Professor for 12 years. Shortly thereafter, Clint partook in a Teaching Abroad Workshop in Poland and decided to change departments at IUPUI to the CGT department where he instructed full time as a Lecturer for one year. Clint then decided to move to part-time teaching online to pursue a dream of living abroad. Clint has now lived in Poland for 7 years and taught over 40 online courses for the CGT department. Clint's main area of instruction is in 3D graphic Arts for gaming/entertainment/themed attraction/interior design (Maya, Zbrush, Max, SketchUp, Substance Painter, and many other softwares) for character animation, modeling, texturing, lighting and compositing but also teaches high end courses in 2D Graphic Arts (Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects, etc.), Interior Design, and even taught Audio Visual Engineering (Audition). While he has been living in Poland, Clint also worked on two AAA game titles: Sniper 3 and Lords of the Fallen as an Environmental Artist. Other Professional CG artwork Clint has completed are with Discovery Channel, the Indiana Pacers, ESPN, the Children's Museum, and CI Gaming. Clint in his free time loves working on his own personal CG art projects, some gaming of course, and movies with LOTS of special effects!
