Goals
At the end of the Computer Graphics course, the student should be able to
 understand the theoretical/mathematical fundamentals in computer graphics
 understand the programming fundamentals in computer graphics
 understand the current strengths and weaknesses of 3D graphics algorithms
 have insight into ray tracing algorithms
 have insight into illumination and rendering
 have insight into interactive line and surface models
 have insight into high performance computer graphics software systems
 have insight into theoretical and practical problems in computer graphics
 build a computer graphics program
Description
The goal of this course is to create a foundation (theory and programming) for understanding the current and future technology underlying computer graphics. Our intention is to create a synergistic mixture of theory and practice. The first part of the class begins with introductory lectures into the mathematical fundamentals and workshops in programming 3D graphics. In the second half of the semester, the class moves to current state of the art methods which are presented by the students. Examples of typical subjects which will be covered are:
 3D modeling
 3D lighting & effects
 Real time rendering
 Advanced applications and systems
Prerequisites
The student should be fluent in C/C++ programming.
Literature
 All educational materials are supplied digitally.

Examination
The final grade is composed of
 Presentation and home work (30%)
 Software assignments/workshops (20%)
 Project or Exam (50%)
Projects are evaluated using guidelines similar to the Bachelor project:
 Project work – level of difficulty, contributions and quality of ideas and implementation
 Project paper – scientific summary and assessment of project
 Execution – planning and systematic application of methods
 Presentation – clarity, knowledge, scientific assessment of the project
