Computer Graphics and Visualziation Courses
All course codes begin with the prefix "CSCI-" (used for Computer Science). Undergraduates specializing in Computer Graphics and Visualization are required to take CSCI-510 and an additional two courses. Graduate students specializing in Computer Graphics and Visualization are required to take CSCI-610 and two additional graduate courses
Please Note: Undergraduate students may take a number of CG&V graduate courses with permission of the course instructor, or the graduate coordinator. CSCI-519 and CSCI-719 are special topics courses, whose subject will be chosen by the instructor when offered.
