Scientific Visualization Lab

The Valparaiso Scientific Visualization Lab (SVL) is dedicated to introducing visualization in the education of undergraduate students in all areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

With the continued improvement in computer and projection technology, a number of low cost visualization systems are now available to educational institutions. With the availability of these systems comes the need to develop visualization applications that can be integrated into existing courses. The focus of SVL is to develop visualization applications and to help educators understand how visualization can be used to help students learn complex topics.

The group is directed by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in the College of Engineering at Valparaiso University. Other departments within the Colleges of Engineering and Arts and Sciences collaborate on the development of visualization applications that are integrated into the undergraduate curriculum.
