SMJ02066 Computer Graphics and Animation

The subjects in this sub-major provide the theoretical and practical knowledge required to understand and build modern 3D computer graphics applications and games. This knowledge is applied to building a ray tracer, producing a 3D computer animation, designing and developing simple computer games, and optionally carrying out a games and graphics project. Students must be competent in programming with C++ or otherwise have completed 31251 Data Structures and Algorithms.

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Games Development (C10229) have limited subject choice due to overlap with the core component of their course and are required to submit an eRequest to add this sub-major to their study plan.
