Brief description of the workshop:

Globally, demand is increasing  for skilled professionals proficient in immersive technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). According to Goldman Sachs reports that the AR/VR industry will be worth $95 billion by 2025. At the same time, running in parallel is AI and machine learning, which are not only becoming mainstream quickly, but are now considered mission-critical for modern business.

The Eight-week Foundation course on Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) provides working professionals with the essential Unity3D skills / tools needed to build VR AR apps by better understanding of these emerging technologies. Valuable insights from a distinguished IIT Madras faculty members and Industry leaders will help them to acquire critical knowledge of perceptual engineering and AR VR system design principles.  This program also offers participants a project development workflow to create a presentable prototype. Theoretical concepts will be supplemented with hands-on tutorials via demonstrations and (optional) assignments.

WEEK 8: VR / AR  Project

8th Week will be offline. Details given in subsequent tab

Session dates: August 15 to October 7th, 2022

Last date of Registration:  August 8th ,2022

Offline Project

During the 8th week of the course, the participants are required to make a new project demonstrating their understanding of the concepts they learnt in the course. They learn many AR/VR projects during the previous 7 weeks of  learning the concepts. Their 8th week project could be a simple extension of existing projects or a novel use-case that may be useful for their organization. The faculty and research scholars in the campus will help them to do the chosen project themselves.

During the 8th week of the course, while the participants are in the campus, they will be immersed into several workshops (Healthcare, Public Sector Use cases etc), demos, panel discussions, site visits of experiential centers, Industries and Startups. The workshops will involve making use of some of the gadgets that are normally not-available for individual users.

KIT Required : The participants are required to own a headset such as Quest-2 and a desktop or laptop that can run one of the Game engines, preferably UNITY3D.

For Accommodation:

Accommodation on campus will be arranged based on availability. The participants bear the cost.
