Coordinator Hanh Nguyen Vo Opens in new window

Description Computer Graphics will examine elementary graphics concepts, algorithms and programming skills for producing graphical applications, in both two-dimension (2D) and three-dimension (3D) using Open GL. Techniques and algorithms will be programmed in Processing, which is a very easy-to-learn programming language yet powerful and comprehensive.
