Overview of Classes & Program
Introduction

As an Urban Planning student, you are not going to natively be exposed to advanced computer graphics. You will need to receive permission to take courses in the Art Department that will introduce you to programming in Open GL and Ygdrasil. Approximately 2 courses (AD 408 Introduction and Advanced) will provide you with a foundation to begin programming for the CAVE.

Get Permission

To receive permission to register for selected Art and Design classes, please contact the Associate Dean of Students, Vincent Paglione, in the Art and Architecture department.
