The Master on Virtual Environment Technologies is structured in traditional front lectures and in laboratory sessions and the program is divided in 2 semesters. Applicants for the Master Programme shall have a degree from a university course of at least five years in technical disciplines, e.g. Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics or Physics (Master of Science in the above disciplines). The objective of the first period is the transmission of competence through front teaching, lab training and specialized seminars for a total amount of 400 hours.
- The first period is divided into two teaching modules. The first teaching module takes place at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa, Italy since October up to November for a total duration of 6 weeks. The second teaching module takes place at Transilvania University in Brasov, Romania since November up to December for a total duration of 4 weeks.
