## Toegangseisen

The student should be fluent in C/C++ programming.

## Beschrijving

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

## Leerdoelen

At the end of the Computer Graphics course, the student should be able to

understand the theoretical/mathematical fundamentals in computer graphics
