Reasoning behind the pre-requisites for
GPU Programming for Video
The prerequisites ensure familiarity with C,
assembly language-level concepts (registers, op codes, etc.), and
object-oriented programming, as well as programming experience beyond the first-year introductory course sequences. They provide natural routes into the class for Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering majors (ECE2035 or ECE2036), Computer Science (CS2110) majors, and Computational Media majors participating in the Media or Intelligence threads (CS2261). ECE3090 and ECE3035 are no longer offered; they are listed as legacy prerequisites to accommodate
students who took those classes under the “old” ECE curriculum, which did not have
ECE2035 or ECE2036.
To remain accessible to ECE students, who are unlikely to have taken computer graphics courses offered by CoC, no background in computer graphics is required.
