Syllabus of lectures

In the first part of semester, teaching is through standard "lectures of teacher to students".

Breakdown of topics (example):

  1. Introduction to the course, brief evaluation and "mapping of knowledge", planning of the lecture topics
  2. Rasterization methods used in vizualization, computer graphics techniques for vizualization
  3. Vizualization methods for scientific data and measurement results
  4. Vizualiazation of vector fields and similar types of (non-scalar) data
  5. Non-realistic rendering - artificial colour, nonrealistic shading
  6. Visualiztion of special data from the field of information technologies
  7. Conclusion of lectures, finalization of presentation topics

In the next part of semester, the course is conducted through a series of seminars where students present a presentation on topic of their choice that is followed by a discussion.

Syllabus - others, projects and individual work of students

  • Individually assigned presentations

Progress assessment

  • Individual seminar

Controlled instruction

During the course, it is necessary to submit the project and pass the exam. Teaching is performed as lectures and controlled seminars, the missed classes need to be replaced by self-study.
