Similar to how mobile devices revolutionized the way we interact with our electronic devices, Virtual/Augmented Reality represents another exciting paradigm shift in human-computer interaction.
This course will teach students to use Unity and the Oculus Quest to construct their own VR applications. Students will get exposure to different kinds of VR/AR apps and work in teams to build their own from scratch. After completion of the course, we welcome interested students to join an existing project team with XR@Berkeley or pitch their own project.
The course consists of lectures, labs, homework, and a final project. Each class will include a lecture on VR theories and practices, followed by a "follow-along" style lab. Homework will be weekly for the first half of the course and will consist of practical Unity assignments. Halfway through the semester, classes will transition to giving students time to work in teams on their final projects, which will be showcased at the end of the semester.
Access to Oculus (Meta) Quest headsets WILL be provided during class! Homework will NOT require special VR hardware and can be done on most laptops. Office hours will be provided for using equipment outside of class time.
The class is held in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays 5-7pm, starting the week of January 28th. You will only need to attend one of these sections per week.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
