Computer Graphics and Augmented Reality
2nd Cycle Studies - Mestrado
Computer Programming; Data Strutures and Algorithms; Linear Algebra; Computer Vision
Theoretical classes with detailed presentation, using audiovisual means, of the concepts, principles and fundamental theories and solving of basic practical exercises to illustrate the practical interest of the subject and exemplify its application to real cases.
Laboratory classes where the students are guided on specific aspects of development and consequent analysis of results, enabling them to explore the concepts via hands-on formative and assessement assignments.
This course has the objective of introducting the students to the basic principles of computer graphics, that enables them to develop applications and understand the concepts used in tridimensional modeling tools.
By extending concepts that have connections with other courses, namely in terms of the use of sensors or computer vision techniques. This competencies aim, not only at the development of computer graphics software, but also on contents and supporting technologies.
