Summer School of Data Science, 5 ECTS
Mathematics, natural- and computer science

Institution University of Southern Denmark (SDU)
Campus Odense
Duration 2 weeks


Come and join the summer course “3D Graphics Programming” at SDU. 3D graphics programming is widely used in settings such as computer games, movies, training simulators, and visualization software. In this intense course you will learn about the principles and methods from mathematics and computer science underlying 3D graphics programming. 

Career Opportunities

The course is run by Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. The research of the department covers a broad area, is interdisciplinary and includes both pure and applied research. Computer science research topics include algorithmics, formal methods and programming languages, optimization, data mining, machine learning, bioinformatics and cheminformatics. The department  offers high quality study programmes in computer science at both Bachelor and Master level. All courses on the Master level are offered in English.

About the Degree

Computer science forms the basis for development of efficient and secure modern software, and computer scientists excel at working at all levels from program developers to project managers and executives in software divisions and  software companies.
You will be taught about the methods used in the rendering pipeline of GPUs, and learn how to program it using shaders in OpenGL. If time permits, we will also briefly touch physics based simulation and Game AI.

Teaching and Instruction method
The course will consist of lectures supported by discussion sessions. The students will get accompanying exercises demonstrating the collected knowledge on practical real-world problems. The student activation is completed by a mandatory project and discussions of current state-of-the-art research papers during the study phase.The evaluation will be based on the technical reports and the presentation of selected results.  Grading according to the Danish 7-point scale.


You must have completed at least two years of studies within computer science or related studies.

In addition, documentation may be required verifying that your proficiency in English is at a specified level. Read about the language requirements of the University of Southern Denmark
