Lab Course: Basics & Lab


  • Lecturer(s):
  • Start: Tue, 23.04.2019, 16:00, Endenicher Allee 19a, Room 3.005
  • Dates: TBD
  • Course number: MA-INF 2308 - Track Computer Graphics
  • Curriculum: Master , B-IT Master Media Informatics
  • Diploma Area: B


For beginning master students without basic programming/practical skills we offer a lab course with an initial focus on learning C++ to a reasonable level. On a week-by-week basis, the students will familiarize themselves with C++, implementing a number of algorithms from numerical mathematics and computer graphics. The course concludes with a programming project during the lecture-free period. Further information can be found in the slides.

Practical programming is required for all computer graphics lectures and the proper lab courses. Thus for students lacking practical programming skills this course is a great opportunity. If  you already have working programming knowledge, we ask you to take a normal lab course where you will be able to learn a lot more.
