MRes VirtualReality students banner2

Programme Structure

This research Masters programme focuses on technology and applications of virtual reality, computer graphics, imaging and computer vision.  Students conduct research alongside world leading researchers specialising in cutting-edge research into virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D modelling, visualisation, interfaces, gaming and social. They enjoy UCL’s multidisciplinary tradition, sharing ideas and resources from across UCL’s Faculty of Engineering Sciences and beyond.

Students will learn how to analyse, engineer and evaluate a broad range of virtual reality and augmented reality systems. Students will learn how to analyse requirements for interfaces, such as type of system, role of application tasks and perceptual requirements. Students will learn how to develop for advanced immersive systems. Students will also learn about how to validate and evaluate systems.
