Content

Integrating study and work experience in a systematic way is essential for forging close links between the university education process and the workplace. In SIT759 students will have the opportunity to apply skills developed during previous VR and AR units, and gain professional work experience in the Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) disciplines in collaboration with an approved industry partner. The exact nature, activities and emphasis in each industry placement will vary according to the context, resources and expertise of staff as well as the experience and capabilities of the student, though commonly the student will be engaged in VR/AR-related projects. This systematic opportunity will provide students with experiences during which they can develop and demonstrate autonomy, well-developed judgement, adaptability and responsibility. Concurrently they can learn about and with an organisation, critically reflect on their professional development with respect to Course and Graduate Learning Outcomes, and discipline-specific and generic competencies in the context of VR/AR application and content development.
