Banner Code: 1_CT_VRAR
Control Number: 38324
This certificate is designed to be a comprehensive 2-year study in both Virtual and Augmented Reality within the growing field of Immersive Media, including targeted courses in the related specializations necessary for a well-rounded base of knowledge and practice. Transitioning from simple 360-degree video and audio capture through computer graphic-based 3D Modeling and Video Game Development principles will gradually add higher level skill and increased immersion into the course content. An Advanced Development Lab will be offered at the summit to allow students ample access to the specialized technology needed to create portfolio-level VR and AR projects with the intent of using these works to obtain gainful employment and/or internships in this rapidly growing field.
- The Immersive Media program offers a Certificate of Achievement that, when completed, gives the student the basic skills required for entry-level employment and/or internships in Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Multimedia and Game-related industries in the areas of 360 video, 360 Audio, VR/AR Development & Content Creation, Immersive Game Design & 3D Modeling, and Drone Imagery for Immersive Media.
Orange Coast College offers two types of certificate awards in career programs designed to prepare the graduate to enter a particular field of employment. At least 3 units in an advanced course from the certificate must be completed at OCC.
- Certificate of Achievement - 8 units or more in a state-approved program. Certificates of Achievement are not automatically awarded. A petition must be filed in Enrollment Services or online at the beginning of the semester in which the student will be completing his or her final requirements.
