CS 752 is a 3-credit advanced graphics course with prerequisite CS 551 (formerly CS 652). If you took CS 451 before and would like to take CS 752, you may talk to the instructor to get his permission under certain restrictions. Topics are selected from shaders, visualization, modeling, rendering, animation, simulation, virtual reality, and current graphics software tools. Emphasis will be on software methods and current research topics. Students are encouraged to introduce interesting materials and new topics for class projects and discussions.

There are all together 100 points:
Your overall course score, S, will be the sum of these points.
Class participation is very important. Active participation will be rewarded with extra points toward your score S.
Each assignment late will result in a deduction of 1 points per day from the total.
If there is an accident or emergency and you let me know, I will consider it accordingly.

GMU is an Honor Code university; please see the University Catalog for a full description of the code and the honor committee process. The principle of academic integrity is taken very seriously and violations are treated gravely. What does academic integrity mean in this course? Essentially this: when you are responsible for a task, you will perform that task. When you rely on someone else’s work in an aspect of the performance of that task, you will give full credit in the proper, accepted form. Another aspect of academic integrity is the free play of ideas. Vigorous discussion and debate are encouraged in this course, with the firm expectation that all aspects of the class will be conducted with civility and respect for differing ideas, perspectives, and traditions. When in doubt (of any kind) please ask for guidance and clarification.
