Deakin’s Graduate Diploma of Virtual and Augmented Reality provides a comprehensive curriculum that targets the key areas of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Virtual Reality (VR) is an immersive digital environment that can replicate lifelike physical environments or portray a fictional artificial world, and makes the user feel they are immersed in that environment in real-life. Augmented reality (AR) is created by enhancing real life objects/environments with a digital overlay. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are expected to be the next big computing environment due to the rapid uptake and development of the area over the past few years. Virtual and augmented reality are already being integrated into a number of industries such as healthcare, tourism advertising, entertainment, automotive, gaming, education and space industries. The varying scope of industries showcases how crucial it is that we train graduates in this space and put them at the forefront of this incredibly exciting and innovative field that is VR/AR.
