Post-grads develop skills in virtual worlds

Published: Thursday, 01 December 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Virtalis has formed an agreement with the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), the University of Liverpool’s digital innovation centre in London, to create a 4K ActiveWall and adjacent ActiveDesk facility on campus.

The University of Liverpool in London campus specifically caters for postgraduates and those pursuing Continuing Professional Development Programmes.

All of the courses available in London are delivered by staff from the University of Liverpool, allowing them to foster its links with companies located in the capital.

Lynn Dwyer, business integration manager, Virtual Engineering Centre at The University of Liverpool, commented: “Our new VEC in London facility is multi-disciplinary, though there are core subjects including architecture, urban planning and industrial design.”

Through the close relationship with Virtalis – a world-leading Virtual Reality (VR) and advanced visualisation company – students are able to use VR technology that they can take into their research, as well as any future career.

Improve capability and business performance

Combining Virtalis’ technological know-how and their latest VR hardware and software alongside the technical and academic expertise from the University, the partnership will become a premium VR facility and professional development experience in the heart of London.

“Our links to the University of Liverpool, both within its Engineering Department and through the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC) at Daresbury, stretch back almost a decade”, said Virtalis MD, David Cockburn-Price.

A key aim for the centre is to improve capability and business performance through the evaluation and adoption of virtual engineering tools and techniques.

One of the main benefits for postgraduates working in the centre is that it is much easier to take risks and experiment in virtual reality than it is in real life, harnessing their creativity and innovation.

Virtalis’ technology has been used throughout a number of programmes, including Formula Student, which act as a testing ground for the next generation of world-class engineers.
