The future is VR, with the San Jose Cogswell College announcing its new Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality (VR/AR) Certificate Program with the school adding that it's the first of its kind to do so.
Jerome Solomon, Cogswell's Dean of the College & Director of Game Design and Development, explains: "We look forward to helping the industry make sense of the exciting recent developments in virtual reality. We recognize the pain of developing around emerging VR/AR systems while at the same time the gaming industry has always led the way in finding applications for new technologies".
The new program will also cover Perceptual/Cognitive Aspects of VR/AR; HCI Design; Design for VR; and Project-Based Iterative Application. Timothy Duncan, DMA, Professor, Director of Digital Audio Technology said: "VR and AR are quickly emerging as leading areas for content and technology development. In keeping with Cogswell's 130-year tradition of educational excellence, we are offering this brand new set of VR & AR classes to help our students bridge the preparation gap by working with these trending and ground-breaking new technologies today".
