Dynamic Reality Technologies (AAS-DRT)

Program Location:  Fairhope Campus

Length:  Four Semesters

The Associate in Applied Science degree in Animation, Interactive Technology, Video Graphics & Visual Effects—Dynamic Reality Technologies is technical degree, which is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the VR/AR/MR Industry in the use of virtual reality and virtual reality training simulations.  The program enables the discovery, stimulation, development and demonstration of students’ true creative potential within the context of a real 3D simulation production.  Students will also experience stimulating creation and production situations similar to those found in industry.  At the end of the program, students will have created a professional portfolio of their work in digital creation, according to industry standards use of VR/AR/MR-based technologies and holograms for employer-developed training simulations.

This is a career program designed for students to go directly into the labor market upon completion.  Although some of the courses in this program will transfer to four-year institutions, this program is not designed to be a transfer program of study; therefore, it is not subject to the terms and conditions of STARS.
