January 16, 2023: McMaster Engineering partners with Virtualware to introduce their first ever VR room in Canada
The partnership will foster initiatives to facilitate access and promote the adoption of VR in education and research.
The Faculty of Engineering has partnered with Virtualware to adopt and scale the award-winning VR enterprise platform VIROO®. This initiative will be inaugurated in early 2023 with the unveiling of a 100m2 custom-built immersive room at one of Canada’s most innovative universities in the world, providing access to students, faculty, and businesses to push boundaries and explore the use of VR tools and technologies in the region.
Leveraging each other’s strengths, the initial four-year partnership will foster initiatives to broadly facilitate access and promote the adoption of VR in education and research by blending physical and virtual workspaces.
