In a step-by-step process (learning spiral) that brings theory and practice together, you will develop your implementation and interdisciplinary skills and consolidate them in various projects.
You will analyze and explore new problems at various points in the program, experiment with the foundational skills and knowledge gained in the “learn” phase and consolidate it in your projects, both individually and in group work settings.
You will identify areas where you would like to expand your knowledge, choose your related and specialization modules accordingly and/or independently research suitable tools, methods and solution approaches with the support and guidance of our coaches.
The “apply” side of the program has an increasing level of complexity: while the briefs for your initial projects will be based on simpler tasks, you will work on real-life tasks set by practice partners in the more advanced semesters. The program culminates in your bachelor’s thesis in the sixth semester (highest level of complexity). This structure allows you to gain extensive practical experience during your studies, to interlink your acquired skills and knowledge and to work in an interdisciplinary way.
"Students expect different things from their study program today than they did twenty years ago. We take this into account in the BSc in Immersive Technologies program by offering holistic learning experiences that allow the students to solve concrete problems and test their skills and knowledge in the process. Also, by learning from each other through collaboration, feedback and coaching.”- Prof Dr Aljosa Smolic, lecturer in the BSc in Immersive Technologies program and Co-Head at the HSLU’s Immersive Realities Research Lab
"Immersive technologies are very user-centered. Psychological aspects play a major role. It's this interdisciplinary interplay of different aspects that I find particularly appealing in this area of technology.” - Prof Nathaly Tschanz, Head of Program, Bsc in Immersive Technologies
