In partnership with Mohawk College, EON Reality is now opening the Interactive Digital Center (IDC) in Hamilton, ON, Canada. The new IDC houses a VR Innovation Academy, which teaches the skills needed to be successful in creating AR and VR content and applications for industry and training. The IDC will build on the growing technology and Virtual Reality community in Ontario and help position Mohawk College as a leading location for AVR development and education in North America.

The VR Innovation Academy teaches the skills needed to be successful in creating Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality content and applications for industry and training. The ability to perform many of the cross-disciplinary functions for AR/VR and interactive digital media is dependent on being creative while also having a firm understanding of the underlying technology. These skills enable students to work in architecture and product visualization, game creation, multimedia design, and broadcast media. 

This program is suited to energetic and enthusiastic individuals who have both a passion to succeed and a ‘can do’ attitude. The selected candidates will be highly motivated with an aptitude for developing creative and interactive digital content. A degree in computer science, gaming, visual arts, digital media, or similar is ideal but not essential.
