The ICM is pleased to be collaborating with West Suffolk College exploring the potential of the new VR centre ─ a pilot project to create a Local Learning Hub for the construction sector and all its diverse parts bringing together students of all levels with industry at all levels to provide immersive learning experiences ─ discovery of what 'good' looks like ─ and understanding what 'bad' looks like too! ─ and competently being able to prove how to Define safe systems building trust!
This groundbreaking partnership is set to revolutionize the way that construction management is taught, giving students access to the latest technologies and giving them the chance to develop their skills and knowledge in an exciting, interactive and immersive environment. At the heart of the collaboration is the XR Lab, a state-of-the-art facility that utilizes the latest in virtual reality and augmented reality technology to provide students with a unique learning experience. This lab allows students to explore and experience real-life construction projects in a virtual world, enabling them to gain an understanding of the complexities of the industry and familiarize themselves with the tools and techniques used in the construction process. The collaboration between ICM and Eastern College Group is a testament to the commitment of both organisations to providing students with the best possible education. Through this partnership, students will have access to the latest technology and have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a safe and secure environment.
The XR Lab complex has extensive associated tech teaching facilities for such as coding and deep understanding of the future - particularly state-of-the-art 3D 'green studio' media production and advanced avatar and motion data capture etc. ... the ICM team is excited to be able to interface with students developing their multi-media skills in a direct industry integration and shared experiences opening to meaningful work opportunities ...
Collaboration is a powerful force for good in the world, enabling multiple parties to work together in order to achieve greater results than they would have been able to do on their own. This is especially true when it comes to the collaboration between The Institute of Construction Management (ICM) and the global company Cobuilder, along with Eastern College Group and its new XR Lab at West Suffolk College.
This powerful partnership is driving forward the advancement of construction technologies, while ensuring that students and professionals alike have access to the very best in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) training.
The ICM and Cobuilder are committed to providing the highest quality educational experiences and resources to the students and professionals who use their services. At the same time, Eastern College Group and West Suffolk College are providing a unique platform on which to innovate and explore the potentials of these emerging technologies. The XR Lab at West Suffolk College is enabling students to get hands-on experience with the latest in construction technology, giving them the skills and knowledge they need to become the industry leaders of tomorrow.
This collaboration is an inspiring example of how we can come together to create something truly incredible
Extended Reality or XR is going to be the high tech that will make us feel like we are living in the future. XR encompasses a conglomeration of
VR - Virtual Reality, AR - Augmented Reality and MR - Mixed Reality.
