IRVINE, CA, USA, Jan 5, 2021 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new partnership with Maharaja Institute of Technology Thandavapura (MITT) in Karnataka, India.
As EON Reality’s latest academic partner for XR solutions, MITT will receive a rollout of EON-XR for 100 selected users — with a particular emphasis on engineering students. As a career-focused college that utilizes groundbreaking technology to teach effective courses, MITT is a perfect representation of how even a small-scale rollout of EON-XR can help to improve the academic efficiency of hands-on learning.
“Bringing EON-XR to some of the top engineering students in India is massively rewarding for us, as we know that not only are we helping MITT and the surrounding community, but also the future of the global workforce. By training these students in XR as a part of their academic career, EON Reality is helping to guarantee that the next generation of engineers knows how to work, instruct, and create in the latest and greatest immersive technology. We are thrilled to see this partnership working so well.”, Dan Lejerskar, Founder of EON Reality.
For modern-day engineering students, many schools have been attempting to fill the void of physical hands-on training by offering additional digital materials, industrial visits and technical talks by industry professionals, but this proved to be less-than-desirable for MITT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering. Looking to connect their academic offerings to real industrial opportunities as much as possible, being able to offer not only EON-XR solutions for their own lessons but also XR certification courses has been a major benefit for the institute.
“EON Reality’s extraordinary team has really performed well in engaging the session and in making my students realize their potential. The principal and administration of the institute are happy about the positive feedback from the students. On behalf of MIT Thandavapura, I take this opportunity to thank the team from EON Reality for collaborating with us.” Mr. Channabasavanna S. G., Assistant Professor Department of Mechanical Engineering of Maharaja Institute of Technology, Thandavapura.
EON Reality and MITT’s partnership will continue to evolve in 2021 and beyond, so keep an eye out for the latest updates.
