The AR/VR Design Experience track in the Visual Computing & Computer Graphics concentration creates a multi-disciplinary curriculum that offers students a comprehensive education and research experience in the emerging field of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.
In the Fall term, an introductory class of AR/VR will be given by a deep bench of Berkeley faculty in Graphics, Computer Vision, and Human-Computer Interaction. In the Spring term, the students will be immersed in carefully curated Capstone Projects that pair the students with our faculty groups, leading industrial sponsors, or entrepreneurial projects. We expect the students through this program to master the necessary knowledge and skills of becoming technology leaders in the rapidly expanding AR/VR industry.
