     What is Scientific Visualization?

    When comes to definition for Scientific visualization we have a great number of them, but we would say that scientific visualization combines computer graphics, numerical methods, and mathematical models of the physical world to create a visual framework for understanding and solving scientific problems. The mathematical and algorithmic foundations of scientific visualization (for scalar, vector, and tensor fields) will be explained in the context of real-world data from scientific and biomedical domains at post-secondary courses.

    Our goal for the scientific visualization program is to help high school students:

       gain experience using a multitude of computer graphics software

       develop problem-solving skills

       become independent learners

       acquire the intellectual confidence required to help them be successful with their post-                                     secondary education


    Development of an expertise in Scientific Visualization might lead to careers in areas such as:

       Scientific Imaging

       Medical Imaging

        Remote Sensing

        Information Visualization

        Engineering and Manufacturing

        Graphic Design

        Architectural Design

        Film and Gaming
