XR Design


The versatile XR Design studies integrates the professional knowledge of industrial design with technological, digital and virtual environments. It is a way to respond to the challenges of developing the physical and digital worlds with a new kind of know-how and agility. During the studies students learn for example how to create interactive virtual environments, 360 videos and how to utilize game engines.

As the digitalization spreads in the global world into all the fields of the society, the amount of job opportunities will increase, especially for people with hybrid knowledge of creative economy, user driven design and technology. There will be completely new work tasks in the future, for which the XR studies will give skills and tools. Different kinds of tools of extended reality will improve and become a part of everyday life. New kinds of experts are needed, who can create content and on the other hand utilize the possibilities of new technology and its possibilities in multidisciplinary product development and in industry.
