The leading global digital transformation company, Compass UOL, has announced a scholarship program for training professionals for the metaverse through an innovation studio focused on gaming and extended reality.
The 1,000 metaverse-related scholarships will become a part of its much broader Compass Academy initiative, encompassing 3,000 scholarships for several institutions in Brazil. The initiative aims to prepare students over a three-month period with metaverse technologies, such as augmented reality, virtual reality, NFT, blockchain, DeFi, design, animations, games, real-time 3D, and many other areas through Compass UOL’s 18 innovation studios.
The program will work with a combination of practical projects and out-of-class workshops to provide students with an overview of real and specific market challenges. They will also obtain access to several platforms, such as Unity and Unreal Engine, and others catering to augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D modeling and animation, agile methodologies, and more. It would enable the students to understand how real-world projects work while working on their own ideas with support from the company’s team.
The program further aims to onboard talent to fulfill their workforce needs with the rapidly growing metaverse market.
“Through gaming, augmented reality, virtual reality, and extended reality technologies, we create immersive digital solutions that connect people and businesses in unique experiences,” said Alexis Rockenbach, CEO of Compass UOL. “With these new technologies, we boost the way our clients communicate with their consumers, fostering disruptive business transformations with innovative digital interactions that transcend the physical and the virtual.”
Compass UOL’s Innovation Studio focuses on advancing these technologies by fostering specialization for professionals to keep up with the needs and demands of the global market. The Gaming & XR Innovation Studio collaborates with seventeen different areas of the company to provide technology solutions for its clients belonging to diverse sectors.
