Hello,
I have a strong passion for 3d modeling. What and where would you suggest me to get a university degree so i can pursue that job/career ?

is 3d modeling only included in:
architecture,
mechanical engineering,
product/industrial design,
3d art such as video games,movies ?

Our company does a lot of that for construction. we can do more with it them most design firms (architects/engineers) I can ask on of the engineers who do it what they think are the best schools for it. The guy I know best has a masters. Do you want to now about undergrad or grad school options?

You haven't really shared much about yourself and what you are looking for, ie, your stats, what you can afford, what kind of college you want, etc. Assuming you are just starting your search, check out colleges with co-ops. Here's one: Freshman Engineering Experience - Drexel Engineering

You can find 3d modeling in all kinds of simulation related industries like military simulation or modeling interactions of protein molecules or modeling spacecraft orbits. Of course it's huge in drafting.

But it depends - what type of modeling you want to pursue. Do you want to learn the artistic side where you learn tools to draw 3d objects to manipulate (possibly art or digital design degree) or do you want to be the person that designs the actual modeling software or environment (general computer science degree) or do you want to be the guy\girl that applies math and physics to model chemical processes or fluid flow or building strength (all forms of engineering)?

I would like to be mostly focused on 3d modeling, so my future job could be 90% of 3d modeling. I guess that's only in video games/cinematics/digital art.

He's asking what kind of 3d modeling. The education required for video game art is vastly different than the education for 3d modeling of the flow field through a turbine engine.

yea, i guess if you want to model a turbine engine as a mechanical engineer you must have/know that profession, 3d modeling software is just a tool. And you probably won't get too much 3d modeling in it after all.

So probably art / entertainment
