Computer Graphics

Tentative Syllabus for Computer Graphics

  • This course mainly for 3rd level students.
  • Prerequisite: Math 1, Math 2, Programming language-1 and -2.

Course Goals

  • Overview of core ideas in graphics and imaging
  • Modeling the world, image synthesis
  •  3D graphics: geometry, rendering, animation
  • Acquire core concepts and skills
  • Representations (geometry, images, transforms, …)
  • Algorithms (sampling, subdivision, ray-tracing, …)
  • Technology (GPUs, displays, cameras, …)
  • Games may be designed on mobile devices, in a client/server/browser environment, or on a standard personal computer using threading.
