Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Welcoming graduates from all subject areas, this course exploits and encapsulates the knowledge you have acquired from any degree background into a VR environment that can be deployed in an exciting, interactive and immersive way for commercial, medical, research, educational or even entertainment purposes, broadening your intellectual skills from a narrower base of undergraduate knowledge into a multidisciplinary skill set.

This programme aims to:

  • Define and develop effective computer based applications
  • Enable graduates to reflect on the importance and individual strengths and weaknesses in entrepreneurial and innovative thinking and to effectively utilise idea generation and problem solving techniques
  • Explore theoretical views on media, marketing, culture and human centred design through the project design process
  • Engage with organisations effectively to develop project plans
  • Develop graduates with a fundamental understanding of project management

VIRTUAL REALITY EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

There is a lack of VR specialists with subject expertise across engineering, science, business, and the arts and humanities sectors, which is hampering industry growth. The aim of this programme is to produce experts who know how to create VR and know experiences to bridge this gap.

Our career support services include:

  • Employability workshops, employers’ talks, bespoke events and careers fairs
  • Individual advice and guidance from professionally qualified Careers Advisers
  • Help with finding jobs, internships, work placements and volunteering opportunities
  • Access to information resources on a wide range of career management topics
  • Funding to support student internship opportunities and Student Society/Club events.

We also provide help and advice for Swansea University Alumni up to two years after you graduate.
