Dear students,

hello, currently you can see all the terms in which you can achieve "points" in the course. The timing of the terms, however, will be updated after we discuss them with you and if you see date 24.12.2019, it means "not defined yet".

Pavel Zemčík

This course is instructed in English, and it is intended for incoming Erasmus+ students, too.

Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

The students will get acquainted with the advanced computer animation and computer graphics methods suitable for dynamic and large scale scenes. They will also learn how to practically implement selected algorithms through projects.

Generic learning outcomes and competences

The students will practice teamwork on the projects, work with literature, and practical experience with C/C++ and other languages.

Learning objectives

To get acquainted with the advanced computer animation and computer graphics methods suitable for dynamic and large scale scenes. To learn how to practically implement selected algorithms through projects.
