There is even a contest at the end of the semester. A lot of the concepts we covered in class (i.e. virtual systems, haptics, etc.) are covered in more detail in this course. If you really wish to go into some type of visualization/virtual reality field, then this course is a great way to gain experience in an academic setting.

HSC301 - Introduction to Information and Data Visualization - This is the Health Science Communications section of CCIT. I once sat in one of their lectures regarding wayfinding in hospitals, really neat stuff. The course teaches some of the same principles of visualization taught in this class and even refers to some of the same examples (i.e. Edward Tufte's design, the subway route map design concept). However, this course is more innovative as it allows for students to actually redesign and create their own information visualization system.
Prerequisite: CCT101H5/BIO152H5/ANT101H5
