Announcing a new partnership with the University California Riverside for continuing education XR courses

January 31 2022

Our expansion across North America continues with our latest partnership with The University of California Riverside (UCR) University Extension Professional Studies. The partnership brings Circuit Stream's XR courses to the entertainment capital of the world and a global tech hub that is leading innovation for the metaverse. Los Angeles learners will now have access to these new XR courses, equipping them with the skills needed to get started in the high growth field of immersive technology.

The new UCR and Circuit Stream course provides students with two XR learning options, XR Development and XR Design. Both paths leverage Circuit Stream's industry-leading curriculum and help students gain Unity development skills and practical experience working on XR projects.

When completed, students will receive an XR Developer or Designer badge from UCR University Extension and Circuit Stream and both programs have no prerequisites or previous experience.

"We're excited to bring extended reality (XR) programs to our region. Students not only learn new skills through hands-on and project-based work, they are also simultaneously building their own professional portfolio of XR projects. That portfolio provides evidence for employers in a variety of industries including gaming, film, automotive, architecture and engineering, and demonstrates the strong skills sets students have developed," explained Associate Dean Annette Webb.

Alumni of Circuit Stream's XR training have transitioned into careers with XR-focused companies such as Unity, Accenture, and Meta (formerly Facebook), as well as other fast-growing companies.

The next XR Development with Unity course begins March 7, 2022. You can find more information at: https://xrcourse.com/ucr/courses/xr-development-with-unity.
