The partnership will bring the knowledge metaverse and XR solutions to Singapore Polytechnic
IRVINE, CA, January 28, 2022 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new agreement with Singapore Polytechnic to expand the knowledge metaverse in Singapore.
Founded in 1954, Singapore Polytechnic is the country’s first polytechnic institution and a continued leader in STEM education and innovation. In addition to offering several engineering degrees, the university offers degrees in chemistry, biomedicine, and information and AI technology. They were also the first polytechnic in Singapore that gave students the opportunity to earn an optometry degree. Given their pioneering history and continued commitment to pushing for forward-thinking education in STEM, Singapore Polytechnic is an invaluable addition to EON Reality’s growing knowledge metaverse in Singapore. With access to groundbreaking XR solutions, the university will move into the future of interactive teaching and give its students even more opportunities to become masters in their fields.
“Singapore Polytechnic has a rich STEM tradition, but they haven’t rested on their laurels. They’ve continually revamped the curriculum for their foundational degrees while expanding into new fields,” says EON Reality founder Dan Lejerskar. “The school’s crest reads, ‘To serve with mastery,’ and Singapore Polytechnic students have continually made an impact on the lives of individuals and society in Singapore and beyond. By contributing to the knowledge metaverse, they’ll continue to honor that foundational credo.”
With the new EON-XR delivery and welcome to the knowledge metaverse, Singapore Polytechnic’s educators will offer “hands-on” training to their students without the usual logistical restrictions in many forms of engineering and vocational studies. With lifelike 3D models and immersive environments at their students’ virtual fingertips, professors can create stimulating and interactive lessons and experiences for those on campus as well as those studying remotely.
Now members of EON Reality’s Singapore network, Singapore Polytechnic will be essential users of EON-XR and eventual contributors to EON Reality’s global network and the knowledge metaverse. Over 80 academic institutions have become creators and curators for EON’s knowledge metaverse in recent months, and each creates and shares experiences based on their areas of expertise. As faculty and students at Singapore Polytechnic master EON-XR, they will provide crucial additions for EON Reality’s future academic partners.
