  • Course number: MA-INF 2308 - Track Computer Graphics
  • Curriculum: Master , B-IT Master Media Informatics
  • Diploma Area: B


For starting master students not yet confident in their programming/practical skills we have a slightly different Lab Course. Here the initial focus is on learning C++ to a reasonable level by implementing numerical and computer graphics related algorithms. There are weekly exercises concluded with a programming project in the teaching free time. Further information can be found in the slides.

Practical programming is required in all Computer Graphic lectures and the normal lab courses. Thus for students lacking practical programming skills this lab course is a great chance. However, if you are confident in your practical skills, then we advise you to take a normal lab course as more knowledge about Computer Graphics is gained.
