UNSW GIE Club Virtual Reality workshop

Tuesday 11 July & Thursday 13 July, 2023

Register NOW to secure your place in one of our virtual reality workshops at the UNSW Computer Science and Engineering Virtual Reality Lab.

In this workshop you will learn about the concept of the metaverse and how to use popular game engines, such as Unreal Engine, to develop metaverse-like environments and create video games that can be experienced through virtual reality headsets. During the workshop, you will have the opportunity to explore a mini metaverse that has been developed for UNSW. You will also use Unreal Engine to create your own 3D landscape.
