Maximiliano Wardle (BSc Immersive Systems Design – Year 4)

To me, the BSc program is more than just a stellar education in realtime technologies and extended reality, although it certainly is that. It is a unique opportunity to study in a truly interdisciplinary environment, supported by world-class experts in a range of fields. It is a rigorous foundation in theory and practice, but also offers the freedom to explore the ideas that truly interest you. The BSc is a preparation for shaping the rapidly approaching immersive future, but in my mind, the greatest skill it teaches is creative problem solving, something invaluable in every discipline.

Hamed Talebany (BSc Immersive Systems Design – Year 4)

What I enjoyed the most about studying at Simvis is the friendly and, of course, professional environment. There were various creative and fun projects to do individually or with a small group of students.
