Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

The students will learn about theoretical background of spatial computer graphics. They get acquainted with tools for graphics scenes modelling. They learn limitations imposed to physical nature of light propagation in computer graphics, principles of methods and algorithms of spatial computer graphics, and principles of computer animation. They get acquainted with OpenGL graphics library, too. Students also acquire practical skills needed for application development with computer graphics or computer animation features.

Generic learning outcomes and competences

The students will learn to work in team. They will also improve their skills in development tools usage and also in practical C/C++ programming.

Learning objectives

Syllabus - others, projects and individual work of students

  1. Individually assigned projects / Team projects

Progress assessment

  • Mid-term test - up to 7 points
  • Evaluated computer labs - up to 12 points
  • Individual project - up to 30 points
  • Written exam - up to 51 points, min. 20 points

Controlled instruction

Mid-term test, evaluated computer labs, and individual project.
To obtain the score from the final exam, the student must gain at least 20 points. In the opposite case, 0 points are gained from the exam. Missed lab excerice can be replaced at a different term of the excercise with the same subject.
