Graphics Course Sequence at Stanford

The textbook is big - over 1000 pages. We won't cover all of it in one course. To give you an idea what we will cover, here is a list of the four graphics courses currently offered at Stanford. Of these four, three are lecture courses based on material from the textbook: 248, 348A, and 348B. For these three courses, the list also shows the chapters they cover. Don't interpret this list too literally; the ordering of chapters in the textbook is not necessarily followed in the courses. In addition, the 300-level courses cover their topics in greater detail than the chapters listed, and they use other books.

Some background in graphics is expected of students taking the 300-level courses, usually fulfilled by taking 248. Otherwise, there is no required ordering among the courses. For more information of these courses, look at our courses home page.
