A Unique Opportunity for University Students

School of Innovation India aims to foster future talent in emerging technologies and bring cutting edge technologies to India for ambitious students. We recognize that the students enrolled in university programmes, across disciplines are very keen to learn emerging technologies provided they have guidance, especially from the Industry.

Towards this end, we launched VR 201, a beginner-level VR Open Elective course at Sastra University, taken by 39 students across 7 departments during Jan-April 2019. After completing VR 201 for Sastra university students, we have now expanded the VR course into 3 levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced level of learning. VR course is being rolled out in a phased manner at Sastra University in the upcoming July-Dec 2019 semester.
