The University Of Tokyo Will Launch Courses In The MetaverseAdmin
The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Tokyo will offer a range of study programs in virtual worlds at the end of 2022. Asahi reports.
The initiative will make it possible to study information technology, artificial intelligence and programming regardless of gender, age, social status and place of residence.
Schoolchildren will be introduced to the metaverses and told about career prospects in the industry. University students and existing participants in the program will be offered retraining opportunities.
Successful completion of the course entails obtaining a certificate. At the current stage, the program is not planned to be separated into a separate faculty with scientific degrees.
The project’s primary goal is to eliminate the personnel shortage in the digital transformation field. The initiative’s authors intend to attract more women to the program due to their shortage in the industry.
