Computer graphics concerns the human visual perception and cognition, augmented reality, virtual reality as well as possibilities and limitations in technology and design. Computer graphics involves complex and multi-disciplinary tasks. For instance, for a long time, the film industry has used computer graphics mixed with real imagery. The complexity of generating the necessary geometry, material and lighting models for this has given rise to a range of techniques such as image-based modelling and lighting, etc. In order to be successful in computer graphics, you must master all such techniques. You can work with e.g. animation, 3D graphics and motion capture, reproduction, manipulation, augmented and virtual reality, computer vision and visualisation of information, etc.
