Computer Graphics

Computer Graphics is semester 4 subject of final year of computer engineering in Mumbai University. Prerequisite: Knowledge of C Programming and Basic Mathematics.

Course Objectives of the subject Computer Graphics is to equip students with the fundamental knowledge and basic technical competence in the field of Computer Graphics. To emphasize on implementation aspect of Computer Graphics Algorithms. To prepare the student for advance areas and professional avenues in the field of Computer Graphics. Course Outcomes of the subject Computer Graphics is at the end of the course, the students should be able to describe the basic concepts of Computer Graphics. Demonstrate various algorithms for basic graphics primitives. Apply 2-D geometric transformations on graphical objects. Use various Clipping algorithms on graphical objects Explore 3-D geometric transformations, curve representation techniques and projections methods. Explain visible surface detection techniques and Animation.
Computer graphics deals with generating images with the aid of computers. Today, computer graphics is a core technology in digital photography, film, video games, cell phone and computer displays, and many specialized applications. A great deal of specialized hardware and software has been developed, with the displays of most devices being driven by computer graphics hardware. It is a vast and recently developed area of computer science. The phrase was coined in 1960 by computer graphics researchers Verne Hudson and William Fetter of Boeing. It is often abbreviated as CG, or typically in the context of film as computer generated imagery (CGI). The non-artistic aspects of computer graphics are the subject of computer science research. Computer graphics is responsible for displaying art and image data effectively and meaningfully to the consumer. It is also used for processing image data received from the physical world, such as photo and video content. Computer graphics development has had a significant impact on many types of media and has revolutionized animation, movies, advertising, video games, in general.
