XR Development With Unity

Earn an industry leading augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) certificate for one of the most in-demand skills in the market with Syracuse University’s College of Professional Studies in partnership with Circuit Stream. In this 10-week online program, you will learn to create AR and VR applications using Unity, C# and industry-standard tools for developing extended reality (XR) applications. Through a proven, project-based curriculum, you will complete the course with the foundational skills needed to build immersive technologies in XR.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:

  • Create their own VR or AR project in Unity
  • Design for different XR platforms
  • Manage production of XR projects
  • Analyze the technical feasibility of XR projects
  • Collaborate in teams working with Unity
  • Leverage a powerful network in the XR industry

Course Format:

This program is offered completely online over the course of 10 weeks. There are two 1.5-hour online live sessions per week along with optional evening drop-in office hours offered an hour each day Monday through Friday.  The course is divided into eight modules with a varying number of lessons within each module. Feedback is delivered through the following:  

  • Quizzes – Formative Assessment: After the end of each module, you’ll have access to contextual questions that help you review what you’ve learned. 
  • Problem-based learning challenges: In every lesson, you’ll have access to two different challenges

Participation in the course requires high-speed internet access and a PC or Laptop that can run VR. Although headsets are not required for the course, we strongly recommend having one. Oculus Quest 2 is one of the best cost-benefit options and works great for beginners. 

Certificate of Completion:

To receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program, at a minimum, students must attend at least 70% of the live sessions to be eligible for the Syracuse University and Circuit Stream XR Developer with Unity certification.
