EON Reality VR Innovation Academy

VRIA Academy

Interested in advancing your career? UNMC iEXCEL, in collaboration with EON Reality, is offering the VR Innovation Academy (VRIA). This exciting and unique opportunity may be exactly what you are looking for!

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) are among the fastest growing sectors of our economy. These technologies are spreading far beyond the gaming and entertainment worlds into business, education and beyond, where they are being used to train employees, educate students and are being applied to health care education and patient care. 

Housed on the UNMC campus in Omaha, NE, the VRIA provides a comprehensive curriculum incorporating two stages of training and application. The first stage provides 16 weeks of theoretical and practical training. The second stage focuses on project-based training and application. The learners will develop skills to create AR/VR applications for many diverse fields, such as health care, architecture, and product visualization. 

The course requires a commitment to training throughout the duration of the certificate program. Course participants will learn from experts in the field of AR/VR and will develop and enhance their skills through real-world projects curated from varied market segments.

Selected candidates, 18 years of age or older, will be highly motivated, with an aptitude for developing creative digital content. A degree in computer science, gaming, visual arts, digital media (or similar) is ideal but not essential.

Upon successful completion of the course, an EON Reality AR/VR Developer Certification will be awarded.

*The EON Reality AR/VR Developer Certification is an industry certification not affiliated with UNMC.
