    Concepts, technologies, and methods for the design and application of interactive, three dimensional, and immersive (virtual and augmented reality) systems and user experiences such as for business, health, engineering, and telepresence.

    How do we design and develop interactive user experiences based on technologies like virtual and augmented reality, ubiquitous and pervasive computing, serious games, natural user interfaces or wearables? Experienced staff share their academic and non-academic expertise with you in a small group, joint teaching and learning environment.
