Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
To give the student a practical understanding of digital image synthesis and analysis
1. Understand and analyse the computer graphics pipeline - 3D geometric primitives, 3D transformation, camera transformation, lighting, projection, clipping, rasterisation.
2. Understand the operation of a 3D computer graphics API - including translation, rotation and scaling of 3D objects, primitives (points, lines, polygons), attributes (size, colour), projection, illumination, animation
3. Design and program an application using a 3D graphics API - including the various function libraries, the range of functions for describing the 3D scene, projection onto a 2D viewing surface, control of the display window, interactivity including events and callbacks, hidden surface removal
4. Analyse digital images using the Fourier Transform algorithm - including an understanding of the space and frequency domains, high-pass and low-pass filtering, texture detection, shifting and scaling
5. Understand and apply the Convolution Theorem - including the concepts of linear shift-invariance, impulse response, the connection between convolution and Fourier Transforms, high- and low-pass filtering viewed as a convolution
6. Apply the concepts of sampling and replication - how sampling an image leads to replication in the Fourier domain, using convolution to increase the resolution of an image, anti-aliasing to reduce artifacts when an image is downsampled
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
