SCHOOL START DATE: SEPTEMBER 30, 2019
WITH THE LATEST AR & VR SYSTEMS
Housed on the UNMC campus in Omaha, NE, the VRIA provides a comprehensive curriculum incorporating two stages of training and application. The first stage provides 16 weeks of theoretical and practical training. The second stage focuses on project-based training and application. The learners will develop skills to create AR/VR applications for many diverse fields, such as health care, architecture, and product visualization.
The course requires a commitment to training throughout the duration of the certificate program. Course participants will learn from experts in the field of AR/VR and will develop and enhance their skills through real-world projects curated from varied market segments.
Selected candidates, 18 years of age or older, will be highly motivated, with an aptitude for developing creative digital content. A degree in computer science, gaming, visual arts, digital media (or similar) is ideal but not essential.
