The Unity Academic Alliance, a program for postsecondary institutions, now features valuable new additions including competency-based curricular frameworks, deep discounts on Unity products, and Unity Certifications. Read on to learn more about how these updates can benefit your school.
As the world’s leading platform for creating interactive, real-time 3D content, Unity is used for everything from game development to augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) applications in fields like architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC), automotive, transportation, and manufacturing (ATM), and media and entertainment. Because of its broad application across a variety of high-tech roles, real-time 3D development skills are in high demand. Jobs using these skills are growing over 600% faster than the overall job market; AR/VR and gaming engineering roles had the highest job growth in 2019. Real-time 3D skills are invaluable for students interested in a rewarding, high-growth career.
Since launching in 2018, Unity Academic Alliance (UAA) has helped over 100 postsecondary institutions start and expand innovative programs in real-time 3D development to prepare students for these in-demand roles. UAA members have benefited from professional development and upskilling opportunities to support their faculty in teaching Unity. They have also had access to Unity Certification materials.
The Unity education team has spent the past few months gathering member feedback to ensure that UAA provides the tools and resources to make their programs a success. Today, as a result of this feedback, we’re excited to share three major updates to the UAA program. Read More technology | Unity Technologies Blog
