Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M) and Monolith Research And Training Labs are going to launch an advanced diploma programme in virtual reality to be offered in both online and offline mode.
The course would be open for anyone with an engineering background including students currently enrolled in engineering degrees anywhere in India. The applications will be available from November 2021 and the first batch will commence from January 2022. The course will have an annual intake of 50 students.
An MoU towards this collaboration was signed recently between IIT Madras and Monolith Research And Training Labs, an associate company of Monolith.Asia- a leading Japanese media communication technology company.
The course is being coordinated by IIT Madras by the Centre of Excellence on Virtual Reality and Haptics, set up under the ‘Institute of Eminence’ initiative of the Government of India.
Graduates of this course will have potential job opportunities in sectors such as IT Companies, animation industries, architecture, and engineering industries to healthcare and media production.
