Program is made available to university students in Rzeszow and Poznan, Poland
(INDIANAPOLIS) The Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) recently sent a group of twelve students and three professors to Poland to teach college-level classes in computer graphics to university students in Rzeszow and Poznan.
During the four-week long program, students completed projects in visual and digital design and gave demonstrations of computer graphics technique. This is the 4th year the School has participated in this program.
“This is a great opportunity for our students to share what they’ve learned with other students around the globe. It’s a great learning experience for them and a real benefit to the Polish students,” said Kevin Marshall, director of Computer Graphics Technology at the School.
Students were chosen to participate in this program based on a submission process consisting of a resume review, personal interview and level of technical expertise in their field of study.
Accompanying the students were Marshall, Dr. Mark Bannatyne, chair of the Computer Graphics Technology department, Dan Baldwin, assistant professor of Computer Graphics Technology and Zeb Wood, graduate assistant. While in Poland, the professors were invited to give four public lectures in Poznan at the College of Communication and Management. The topics of the lectures included: “Using the Computer to Define Reality: Computers in Forensic Research and Criminal Investigation", "Using the Computer's 3D Environment to Teach Different Subjects", “Current Trends in American Illustration for Art and the Entertainment Industry", and “Cross Cultural Understanding of Animation.”
All students in the DCT Programs of Interior Design Technology, Architectural Technology and Computer Graphics Technology are required to have laptops that meet the specifications of each program:
