Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to design digital simulations of real world environments and processes.

It applies to individuals who work closely with subject experts to develop virtual environments for fields including architecture, science and engineering, medicine, conservation and manufacturing. They may also collaborate with programmers and software authors so the simulation is technically achievable.
