Virtual Reality School | Learn AR/VR/XR @ MAGES Institute | SSG Grant

About Virtual Reality School

MAGES Institute is a leading Virtual Reality School in Singapore, conducting Professional Certification courses under IMDA’s Tech Immersion Placement Program and Short Courses for both Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. MAGES’ Virtual Reality Course teaches the basics of Virtual Reality using Unity Engine (with C# Programming) or Unreal Engine (with C++ Programming), and creating an experience to deliver or convey the desired message/emotion and solve a real-world problem. Students are able to differentiate between benefits and shortcomings of available VR platforms, and identify the building blocks of any VR Experience. With premier AR/VR Training at MAGES, students will be able to design their own virtual interactive environment that effectively communicates a scenario or a narrative aspect. Students will also learn to balance the technicalities of the chosen platform such as graphical fidelity, interactivity and user experience using 6 Degrees of Freedom while developing their narrative experience.

Overview Augmented Reality Institute

MAGES Institute is a premier Augmented Reality Institute in Singapore conducting Professional Certification MR Course (called XR Immersive) under IMDA’s Tech Immersion Placement Program along with AR Course and VR Classes. MAGES AR Course covers the basics of Augmented Reality using Unity Engine and C# Programming for scripting, including creating and setting up markers in an immersive environment, and implementing it in a functional AR application designed to solve a real-world problem. Students would utilise technical knowledge such as interface wireframes, markers and placements, and combine them with the principles of design and interaction to create a functioning Augmented Reality application. The Application would also take into account immersion techniques such as sound and appropriate quality visuals, while balancing the technical needs with hardware limitations applicable today. This foundational knowledge of Augmented Reality will allow students to understand the constituents of an AR experience and effectively develop their own AR App.

Augmented Mixed Reality and Extended Reality concepts

Professional Certificate in XR Immersive

Extended Reality is quickly becoming a highly-regarded addition to the technological age. MAGES Institute gladly presents our XR Immersive courses, which will teach participants everything they need to know about creating Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR). XR technology is useful within various industries, such as entertainment, education, marketing, travel, medicine, security, and is expanding more each day.

In this program, AR/VR will be covered in-depth as participants learn how to design, program, and develop interactive experiences. Educators and mentors with expertise in the field teach the most up-to-date techniques as students use modern software to work with real business data sets. Students will have several projects to showcase, industry mentor reviews, and an online portfolio, resume, and profiles to help them step into their career with success.
