Course Language
Course Contents
This course introduces computer graphics and its participants will learn about the scientific challenges and problems of image synthesis and gain working knowledge in this area. The focus will lie on real-time photorealistic rendering, but the introduced notions are often general and apply to a wide variety of topics in the field of computer graphics. The course will present the foundations of image sythesis, as well as the modelling of shape and appearance of objects.
The course will give an overview of the topics, but will create links to contemporary results and research, which will offer the possibility to further deepen certain knowledge and to gain an outlook on recent trends in graphics research.
Study Goals
During this course, the participants will receive an overview of computer graphics and gain familiarity with the field. Further, they will learn about the difficulties and challenges related to image synthesis.

Via practical assignments and lab work, the participants will become familiar with 3D APIs and be able to reproduce parts of the course in practice. They will learn that graphics can be useful in various contexts and create their own applications. Further, it will become evident that graphics can even serve as a means to solve problems studied in other disciplines.
Education Method
The course will consist of about 10 lectures (2 hours each) and 6x4h guided practical sessions. The latter will also serve as a basis for the course project. Two sessions will be dedicated to background knowledge, ensuring that the necessary basics in linear algebra and programming languages are a given.
The final grade will be based on some of the practical assignments, a written exam and a small group project, including a presentation and questions.
