AR/VR for Data Analysis and Communication (11464.1)

Level: Level 3 - Undergraduate Advanced Unit
Credit Points: 3
HECS Bands: 2
Faculty: Faculty of Science and Technology
Discipline: Academic Program Area - Technology



With the confluence of various technologies in the 21st century - underpinned by AI, the principles of human-machine interaction, data analysis and modelling - the use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) plays an important role in business, education and entertainment. This unit introduces students to AR/VR technology and its appropriate use in data analysis and for the communication of information. AR/VR take traditional media types (images, videos, text, audio) and interaction scenarios into a new medium for applications in data science, engineering, IT, education, marketing, healthcare, entertainment and many more. This unit provides hands-on experience in developing and applying AR/VR technology for a range of real-world scenarios. Students will gain both an understanding of the theoretical foundations as well as practical experience in implementing and using AR/VR technology on industry-related examples.

This unit will be co-taught with 11519 AR/VR for Data Analysis and Communication PG.
