HNRS 3035 Sec. 1 - Spring 2017

Professor Dominique Homberger Department of Biological Sciences

M W F 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
221 French House

Course objectives: 3D imaging and animation is a dynamic, multidisciplinary field with applications in basic and applied sciences. This course is an excellent preparation for pre-professional students planning to enter the health sciences professions (e.g., medical and veterinary schools, biomedical engineering, medical physics, etc. The course will combine lectures and hands-on computer labs. Students will work in pairs on real research projects and will be able to choose from a variety of objects (e.g., sharks, birds, parrots, alligators, cats, humans).

Recommended preparation or coursework:

  • Introductory Biology (2 semesters)
  • Willingness to spend extra hours to practice the use of visualization and animation software and to complete a research project in 3D visualization and animation.
