Course Outcomes: 

Understanding fundamental principles of computer graphics

Students will be proficient in basic computer graphics algorithms such as modeling, trnasformations and rendering.

Students will design and code solutions to several programming problems in graphics using algorithms and data structures.

In addition, sutudents will use these techniques to program a large semester project.
