We have launched our MRes Virtual Reality for 2017-2018 entry. This MRes is designed for students who want to go into research in virtual reality, augmented reality or spatial interfaces. It is good training for anyone who wants to study a doctorate or go into industry in the area. We used to offer an earlier version of this MRes as part of our four-year EngD programme in the VEIV Centre, but this new MRes is designed to be standalone.
The 2016 Virtual Reality Technical Achievement Award has been awarded to Anthony Steed, Head of the Virtual Environments and Computer Graphics group at UCL Computer Science, in recognition of developments that have significantly advanced research, engineering and applications of virtual reality systems.

For students and staff at UCL we run a “VR Club” on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
Unfortunately because of numbers, this is not an open event. You will not be able to access the rooms we use without a UCL security pass! We can however host a few external visitors each month. Please contact me or David Swapp for details and an invite.
