The Center for Graphics and Geometric Computing (CGGC), based in the Technion's Faculty of Computer Science conducts basic research in computer graphics, solid modeling, geometry processing, visualization, and discrete and computational geometry. This research is applied to solve problems in a variety of application fields.

The Center for Graphics and Geometric Computing was founded in 2001 with the goal of becoming the hub of computer graphics and geometric modeling in Israel, both on the theoretical and practical levels. The research conducted by the CGGC faculty, their graduate students, and Center affiliates, is at the cutting-edge of academic research, while tuned to industrial applications.

The research spans a broad spectrum of disciplines, allowing computer graphics and geometry students to converge in a productive and stimulating environment. The Center collaborates closely with other leading faculties at the Technion - Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering - and with other academic centers in Israel and abroad.
