Welcome to TSBK07!

This is the home page of TSBK07 Computer Graphics, a computer graphics course focused on real-time animations, parallel programming using graphics shaders, visualization and games.

The course starts from the basics, the mathematical foundations, and covers a wide diversity of topics, including vitals like shader programming, light and shading, texturing and visible surface detection, but also covers deeper topics like large world management, collision detection, fractals and ray-tracing.

We use modern OpenGL with GLSL in all laborations.

The course follows this model:

1) Lectures. Relatively passive learning, introducing theory and practice.

2) Laborations. Get active, learn how to do it yourself.

3) Project. Get creative! Make a project defined by yourself in communication with the course leader, go deeper into the topics that interest you the most.

The course book is primarily sold by Bokakademin, but the number available there is limited. It can also be ordered from Amazon but that takes time. You are welcome to follow the course with the electronic version only but the book is cheap so you don’t have to choose that for economic reasons.
