The term “virtual reality” refers to a computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that users can interact with in a seemingly real or physical way by employing special electronic equipment. Applications can be designed and created for entertainment, business, and educational purposes. Classes in virtual reality teach students about various applications, viewing devices, filming language, audio, production and post-production. They also cover code languages and back- and front-end web development.
A career in virtual reality is akin to working as a software engineer or software developer. An understanding of programming languages as well as UX design is essential. Software engineers earned a median yearly wage of $105,590 in 2018, and employment in this sector is projected to increase 21 percent from 2018 to 2028.
