Leerdoelen  Students are able to 1) use basic concepts for the design, implementation, and applications of graphics systems and algorithms 2) describe how graphics systems work 3) employ the mathematical models behind graphics system operations 

Omschrijving  This course introduces the main concepts behind twodimensional and threedimensional computer graphics such as scanconversion, transformations including the necessary linear algebra, the rendering pipeline with its stages, local and global illumination models, and shape representations. Lectures are accompanied by tutorials and practicals on OpenGL and raytracing, and the relevant theory and algorithms. These tutorials and practicals deepen the understanding of the presented material through discussions and implementation. The course is closely related to image processing, computer vision, scientific visualisation, linear algebra, and objectoriented techniques, and is a prerequisite for the Intelligent Systems and Visual Computing MSc specialisation at the RUG.

(If P1>=4 and P2>=4, then P=0.5*P1+0.5*P2, else P=MIN(4,0.5*P1+0.5*P2), where P1/P2 is the average of two OpenGL/Raytracer assignment grades. The final grade F: If P>=5 and E>=5, then F=0.5*P+0.5*E, else F=MIN(5,0.5*P+0.5*E), where E is the exam grade. The subgrades are not rounded, but the final grade is rounded to the nearest halfinteger with the exception of 5.5, which is rounded to 6.)

Entreevoorwaarden  Mandatory: Calculus for CS (WBCS03605) and Linear Algebra and Multivariable Calculus (WBAI05005).  
Opmerkingen  All CS bachelor courses have limited enrollment:  CS students can always enter each course, regardless of whether the course is mandatory for them or not.  A maximum of only 20 places per course is available for nonCS students. These places are filled on a firstcomefirstserved basis, with priority given to students with a strong CSrelated background (e.g., CS exchange students, AI students, etc.). These students need to meet the course prerequisite requirements as mentioned on Ocasys.  Six weeks before the course starts, the 20 students that can join are selected and added to the course. If you enroll after this date, you will be placed on the waiting list. See here for more info about the enrollment procedure.
