Introduction to computer graphics

The students study and apply fundamental concepts and algorithms of computer graphics for rendering, geometry synthesis, and animation. They design and implement their own interactive graphics programs.

Geometric computing

This course will cover mathematical concepts and efficient numerical methods for geometric computing. We will develop and implement algorithms to simulate and optimize 2D and 3D geometric models with an emphasis towards computational design for digital fabrication.

The GC maker project

The GC Maker Project is an interdisciplinary project course where students work in teams towards solving real-world challenges by leveraging geometric computing methods and digital fabrication technologies.
