Augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technology is taking the leap from the niche to our everyday lives. It’s everywhere from gaming to manufacturing to healthcare, with new jobs and applications appearing all the time. HoloLens AR/VR for Developers is a new course from Continuing Education ideal for anyone interested in exploring the landscape of AR/VR technology and developing coding skills to create their own AR/VR projects in an open source platform.
Offered in partnership with Wyzlink, this 40-hour course introduces participants to the basics of AR/VR technology and its applications for multiple industries (e.g., health sciences, manufacturing). Special focus is paid to the Unity platform, in which students will code a capstone project. All participants will also get first-hand experience using a HoloLens device, both as a user and a developer.
Recommended Prerequisite: One year of coding experience in Java or C#.
