  • Purpose and learning objectives

    VR technology is one of the "hot" topics nowadays. Over the last few years, we have seen that not only the game industry but also many other companies from different industries show a lot of interest in this field. In this course, we will build a simple simulation related to the subject topic that can help end-users better either learn or operate the subjects. Besides this, we will also explore the technology itself, and try to understand what is VR tech, what it is really good at, and what the limitations of the technology are.


    -Understand, differentiate and explain the technologies terminology such as VR, AR, XR, and MR.
    -Understand VR content creation workflow.


    -can prepare and transform CAD files into Unreal engine editor
    -can work with UE4
    -can produce simple game mechanics in the blueprint platform
    -can build and simulate the VR application


    -can design and build the complex workflow in VR
    -can see the potential and use the technology to improve the daily work in the company
