Computer Graphics & Geometry Processing

Welcome to the Computer Graphics & Geometry Processing group, which is part of CITEC and the Faculty of Technology and is headed by Prof. Mario Botsch.

We are interested in 3D-scanning, efficient geometry representations, mesh optimization, shape editing, and physics-based dynamic simulation. Please see our research pages and publication list for further details.

Students can find more information about our educational activities in the list of offered courses and seminars and announcements of possible Bachelor and Master thesis topics .
