A relevant undergraduate Bachelor degree in Engineering program in computer science or equivalent.
In addition, the following requirements must be met:
- minimum 25 credits in mathematics (equivalent to Mathematical Methods 1, 2 og 3), 5 credits in statistics and 7,5 ects i physics on a higher level is required.
Application Code: 9371
Required prerequisite knowledge: This course is an extension of END-3607 Geometric modeling
- Master-level course in Numerical Methods
- Master-level course in Linear Algebra 2
- Master-level course in Graph Theory
- Master-level course in programming in C++

- Evaluators and algorithms for Bezier and B-spline
- B-functions, B-splines and blending
- Expo-rational B-splines (blending splines)
- Advanced morphing
- Dynamic change of shape
- Interactive editing of curves and surfaces
- The project must result in a report and a computer program including source code and executable program.
- A version control system must be used (git)

Objectives of the course
On completion of the course, the successful student is expected to have the following:
- Special knowledge in the field of combination of geometric modelling and programming (K3).
- Have knowledge about splines, blending theory, tessellations and implementation of these (K2 and K3).
- The candidate will work independently with problems, by analyzing the problem and make plans for solving them (S1)
- The candidate will be able independently to make big and/or complex computer programs running on different platforms (S2)
- The candidate can find, analyse and deal critically with various sources of information and use them in development and in argumentation (S4)
- The candidate will be able to write a longer continuous report and present research clearly in written work and in general communicate knowledge orally and in writing (S5)
- Understand that geometry is fundamental in computer games, simulators, computation and heavy computer systems in general.
- The candidate is influenced to maintain and develop curiosity and values such as openness, precision and the importance of separating between knowledge and opinions. (GC1)
- The candidate can contribute to new thinking and innovation processes in cooperation with experts from other fields. (GC3).
