SAE LAUNCHES THE DIPLOMA OF AUGMENTED AND VIRTUAL REALITY

This innovative course allows students to build expertise in technical workflows associated with common augmented and virtual reality platforms and join this exciting and rapidly expanding industry. In the program students will work with industry standard software and learn to use industry standard programming languages.

You will have the opportunity to undertake specialised units designed to work on real-world projects under the guidance of expert SAE staff, all in a collaborative and creative studio-based learning environment.

With strong ties to the industry already, SAE came on board as educational partner of VR company Liminal in 2017

Liminal Co-founder and CEO Damien Moratti says that working with SAE has been a great experience. 

“SAE were one of our first educational partners, it was been awesome seeing the students come here and be really passionate and excited about what they are working on. They are producing really high quality work,” he says. 

SAE Bachelor of Games Development graduate Jaris Rener was offered a job with Liminal after completing his internship with the organisation. 

“SAE definitely prepared me for some of the things I wouldn’t have thought about on my own going into the industry. As well as giving me a real understanding of the hard skills of the industry such as programming and game design, and also the soft skills that go along with them, being able to communicate and work effectively in the industry.” Jaris said.  

Key areas of content covered by the program include:

  • Augmented reality (AR) technology use
  • Virtual reality (VR) technology use
  • Mixed reality (MR) technology use
  • Haptic technologies
  • Human-computer interaction (HCI)
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Scripting
  • Creative problem solving
  • Critical reflection
  • Working under supervision in a paraprofessional role
  • Introductory design and critical reflection processes
  • Technical pipelines and workflow
  • Introductory project management
  • Development of transferable skills

The outcomes of the program are applicable to a wide range of industry roles and applications in areas such as health, tourism, medical, military and entertainment as well as exciting gaming applications.  

The Diploma of Augmented and Virtual Reality is currently available at SAE Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Byron Bay and Melbourne.
