DMET 502 Computer Graphics

Course Information


  • This is a basic graphics course that exposes students to the broad field of computer graphics. The main focus is on the fundamental graphics algorithms. The course presents an introduction to the basic concepts of 2D and 3D graphics.


    • Graphics primitives
    • Solid modeling
    • 2D and 3D transformations
    • Curves and surfaces
    • Projection (perspective, parallel)
    • Hidden surface removal
    • Mapping techniques
    • Color Specification and Use
    • Lighting and shading


  • On completion of the course, students should have good understanding of the theoretical aspects behind many graphics techniques in addition to the knowledge to implement these techniques.
