Engineering Courses Will Be Available in the Metaverse at the University of Tokyo
As instruments for enhancing educational and instructional processes, metaverse platforms are beginning to gain acceptance among educational institutions.
One of Japan’s most esteemed universities, the University of Tokyo, recently announced a plan to teach engineering courses centered in the metaverse. Through the use of metaverse technology, the University of Tokyo will provide several engineering courses. The courses, which are expected to start being offered later this year, will introduce students to engineering topics and combine this knowledge with the abilities to handle worlds based in the metaverse, to manage the digital transformation that is taking place in both the work and educational environments.
Even though these courses in the metaverse won’t lead to degrees, the university’s engineering faculty will set them up and they’ll have two objectives. The first is to enlighten high school students about the variety of engineering and information science-related careers they may pursue at the University of Tokyo. The second objective is to address the lack of staff members who can operate modern technology and digital tools in these academic settings.
The platform to be used for these duties in the metaverse has not been specified by the institution. Courses in topics including artificial intelligence, entrepreneurship training, and next-generation communication technology will be available through this new initiative. The University of Tokyo will award certificates to students who complete these courses, and they will also be able to take in-person courses to supplement their online studies.
Due to the low enrollment of women in engineering courses, the university would reportedly attempt to attract them to these programs.
