Announcing a new partnership with the University of San Diego for continuing education XR courses

January 24 2022

Our team is excited to announce the expansion of our continuing education XR courses with the addition of The University of San Diego (USD) Professional and Continuing Education. Through this partnership our team will offer project-based training that will connect students with certification and skills in the high-growth 3D technology industry.

With recent popularity around the Metaverse, demand for XR courses has continued to increase alongside the growing number of job opportunities. The VR industry is expected to grow to a market value of $15 billion in 2023, California (the origin of modern virtual reality and the world's leading tech hub) is an important market to offer industry-leading VR and AR courses. Partnering with USD has allowed us to further expand our educational programming and further grow the overall skill level of future developers, designers, and technologists.

Andy Drotos, the Director of Professional and Public Programs, shares that the “University of San Diego’s Professional and Continuing Education department wanted to partner with an industry leader who offers immersive technology education for the XR industry. With Circuit Stream being the lead channel partner with Unity, we felt collaborating with the best in industry would allow our students to gain the knowledge and skills to enter into this exciting and growing profession.”

Students enrolled in the program have three XR courses to choose from. Each course follows Circuit Stream's proven curriculum that teaches skills for developing technology for real-time 3D, AR, VR, and more broadly, Metaverse applications.

Upon course completion, learners will receive certifications that verify their skills to employers, including a digital badge from USD Professional and Continuing Education and Circuit Stream.
