Welcome to the CGV Institute at the TU Graz

The Institute of Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualisation (CGV) was founded in 2005 as part of the faculty of Computer Science. Our research and teaching focuses on areas of geometry modeling and processing, digital libraries and research fields related to these, namely CAGD (Computer Aided Geometric Design), Virtual reality, and Cultural Heritage.

Our research facilities include an immersive projection environment referred to as DAVE, a multi touch interaction table, a handheld scanner, a 3D printer, and more.

Our research projects, many in cooperation with industry and international academic research groups, are funded by the European Union and Austrian funding agencies FWF and FFG. The Institute has a close cooperation with Fraunhofer Austria. Research results so far have been published in over 300 articles in international journals, such as CAGD and conferences, workshops and symposia, such as SIGGRAPH and Eurographics amongst others. More about the research areas here.

Opportunities - We are offering student jobs and thesis topics in numerous areas and often have open positions available. If you would like to visit the CGV some time to discuss a possible opportuinity, please feel free to get in touch with us.
