UBC Extended Learning Partners with Circuit Stream to Launch New AR/VR Courses
November 27 2021
The industry demand for individuals with Unity 3D and XR training is continuing to rise, and our team is excited to announce another university partnership with the University of British Columbia Extended Learning (UBC ExL) to offer an extended reality (XR) training program.
The new UBC Extended Learning XR Development with Unity program gives students the choice of two paths in XR development, and a third, soon-to-be-introduced path, in XR design. Each path offers Circuit Stream's leading curriculum. Students will learn real-time 3D skills throughout both paths and gain the experience needed for various careers in the XR industry.
“Partnering with education expert Circuit Stream enables us to scale our course offerings and meet the needs of BC's fast-evolving technology sector,” says Larry Bouthillier, Executive Director for UBC Extended Learning. "These courses offer students real-world, job-ready skills that will help them succeed in an XR development career."
Upon completion, students receive an XR Developer or XR Designer digital badge from Circuit Stream, a certificate of completion from the University of British Columbia Extended Learning, and the chance to earn an Associate Certification from technology partner Unity.
The three courses being offered are:
- XR Development: A 10-week live online course that introduces the fundamentals of creating XR applications with Unity.
- XR Design: A 10-week live online course that explores best practices to design and prototype intuitive, usable and human-centered experiences for XR.
- C# Scripting: A 4-week course that teaches C#, the core programming language of Unity.
The courses are beginner friendly and there are no prerequisites.
