This modul teaches how to create interactive computer graphics applications. This includes the general concepts of computer graphics, which are independent of the programming environment, such as the mathematical description of 2D and 3D objects, lights and cameras, the representation of the 3D scene in a hierarchical scene graph, or a mathematical description of materials and their reflectance properties. By programming examples in a practice-oriented programming environment, the participants learn all the techniques necessary to independently implement their own computer graphics project in the future. To this end, also basics for creating graphical user interfaces are taught. In addition, the course aims at improving the overall ability of the participants to perform scientific work, to solve problems, and to communicate.
None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: Object-oriented Programming, either Algorithms and Data Structures or Practical Informatics II: Data Structures and Algorithms for Pre-Service-Teachers.
