|Subject Overview:||This subject introduces the technologies of computer graphics and human-computer interaction along with the biological, psychological and social aspects of human perception and action that inform the application of those technologies. Topics covered include: 2D and 3D computer graphics, colour and illumination models, raster and vector graphics; geometric modelling, rendering (shading) and visualisation; geometric transformations (including projection), computational matrix geometry and/or animation (kinematics); interaction categories and styles (particularly graphical user interfaces); usability, accessibility (interaction for people with disabilities) and/or internationalisation (design for different countries and cultures); and at least one additional topic such as virtual reality, computer games, augmented reality, telepresence, or other modalities such as interaction through the sense of touch (haptics), audio or image processing and analysis. |
On completion of this subject, students should be able to:
|Assessment:||Project work during semester, expected to take about 36 hours (40%); a mid-semester test (10%); and a 2-hour end-of-semester written examination (50%).
