The Visual Computing division is dedicated to the idea that enhancing vision enhances understanding. Our focus is the exploration of computational methods for making the invisible visible. Doing this brings together a number of disciplines bearing on image making, image manipulation and image understanding. These include Computer Graphics, Animation and Visual Effects, Illustration, Visualization, Visual Perception, and Visual Narrative. Visual Computing supports basic and advanced study through specialized coursework in the B.S., B.A., M.S. and Ph.D. programs in the School of Computing. In addition, we operate Clemson's unique M.F.A. program in Digital Production Arts

Undergraduate students interested in Visual Computing can opt for either the B.S. or B.A. in Computer Science degree program. B.A. students can include also pursue the Minor in Digital Production Arts. Graduate students may enroll in the M.S. or Ph.D. programs in computer science and pursue interdisciplinary research in areas supported by the Division. Areas of exceptional research strength include eye tracking, high performance rendering, parallel-computing for graphics, physically based animation, visual effects, virtual environments, visual perception in visualization and animation, and visually supported education.
