Graphics, Visualization, and Human-Computer Interaction

Much of computer science is about transforming and representing information that enables or supports information processing, either by machines or humans. Graphics, visualization and human-computer interaction comprises the science, engineering and design of graphical, visual, informational and interactive representations for use by humans. At UC Davis, we study theories and principles fundamental to the construction and optimization of graphics, visualization and interactive systems, as well as applications and use of these technologies in a broader, interdisciplinary context.
