All this excitement in the world of VR is already translating into rapidly expanding career opportunities across a wide array of industries. We recently asked our colleagues at Paysa to assemble a career-focused resource for students interested in pursuing VR careers, and we encourage you to download this free guide as a complement to your classroom preview.
The VR Developer Nanodegree program features world-class curriculum built with the most important leaders in the field—including Google VR, Unity, Upload, Unreal, Vive, and Samsung—and is taught by expert instructors like Matt Sonic, who founded SFVR, and Vasanth Mohan, from Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab. The program is led by Christian Plagemann, who is the co-founder of the Google VR team and the Daydream platform.
From learning the fundamentals of using the Unity Game Engine, to setting up your computer with the right hardware, to actually creating your own VR project, this is your chance to experience the VR Developer Nanodegree program firsthand.
VR is one of the most exciting technologies of our time, and our current students are already well on their way to becoming the next generation of creative innovators who are going to drive this technology even further into the future.
