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.

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".

 

He added: "With our new certificate program, we are leveraging our talented faculty's deep industry expertise in animation, gaming, graphics, user interface, design, storytelling, engineering, & audio -- which are all tenants of this new technology. It is our vision that VR and AR ultimately will impact many industries across the globe, most notably in the gaming field. By having students learn these new areas now, they will position themselves as the next generation of technical and creative leaders within exciting new VR & AR frontiers".
