The University of Sunderland, based in the Northeast of the UK, offers transformation experiences to talented students from all backgrounds. And key to its offering is developing highly-skilled, ready-for-work graduates, through career-focused teaching and learning.
It’s been investing heavily in its Faculty of Technology, as well as in its Digital Incubator space. The Digital Incubator is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and has already worked with over 100 students, over half of whom have gone on to set up their own businesses.
The University had begun investigating immersive technology for these facilities and in its search came across Igloo. And, while it explored other options, such as flat screens on walls to create an immersive display, or VR headsets, Igloo was chosen as a tried-and-tested technology, that’s used by industry and enterprise all over the world.
