Additionally, students will become better versed in the technologies that the future workplace will rely on.
“When a company like EON Reality comes to us to invite close cooperation, it opens up a world of opportunity for our students. In general, VIA’s mission is to educate the graduates that companies need, and the closer the interaction we can create between our education and business, the better it is,” said Harald Mikkelsen, VIA University’s Rector.
