Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to visualise 3D data in Virtual- and Augmented Reality.

After the introductory course the participants will be able to use the Lab independently.

Subject of course

This seminar is addressed to students of all faculties and fields of study who want to learn how to visualise their own research results, designs, analyses and simulations on desktop, but also in augmented and virtual reality. Another key objective of the seminar is to promote interdisciplinary cooperation and to support scientific exchange beyond the boundaries of one's own discipline. The seminar is held in German, but support can also be provided in English if required.
The knowledge acquired should ideally serve the participants as a supplement and support for other courses, seminar and master theses or dissertations. However, this is not a precondition for attending the course.
The course also supports the "Smart Campus" project.

After a two-day introductory course in the summer semester - probably in June - a 5-day hands-on workshop will be held as a block. 

Introductory course (expected 10-11 June / hybrid or online): 

Day1: In a two-day introduction, an overview of visualization technologies and scientific visualization as well as their applications in practice will be given. In the Data Visualisation Lab of the TU Library, the opportunities of scientific visualisations in virtual reality can be experienced practically. Depending on the interest and technical background of the participants, this can be data from the disciplines of mechanical engineering, civil engineering, architecture, spatial planning, geodesy and geo-information, process engineering, chemistry, physics, medicine, biology, but also other subject areas.
Day 2: During a hands-on introduction, participants can learn the basics of 3D desktop visualisation with COVISE. In addition, a workshop will discuss how interactive 3D models for virtual environments can be created in an illustrative way and how augmented reality visualisations can be implemented.
The objective of this module is to enable participants to create visualisations on their own and to present them on end devices (monitor, head mounted display (HMD), virtual reality, etc.). This knowledge is to be applied in own research and study projects.

Hands-on workshop (date to be announced / on-site at the Data Visualisation Lab of TU Wien Bibliothek):
In the workshop, visualisations of the models, analyses and simulations created by the students as part of their research and student projects will be developed. In the Data Visualisation Lab, these will then be presented, discussed and subsequently optimised, and further variants will be demonstrated.
A final presentation is part of the assessment in addition to attendance at the course.
