Master's Program in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

Recent advances in computer graphics, sensors and screen technology give us unprecedented possibilities to completely immerse humans in virtual environments or augment the real environment. Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) constitutes a completely new computing paradigm and is currently finding its way into applications for industry, health care, education, entertainment etc. Accordingly, the demand for engineers specialised in VR and AR technology is increasing very fast. With a holistic approach, covering the whole chain “from pixel to perception”, this master's programme aims at educating qualified professionals who can design, implement, and evaluate VR and AR applications while also considering the ethical, cultural, and social implications of such technology.
