The Center will support a Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality certificate program offered through the Lehman College School of Continuing and Professional Studies. EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, and Lehman College, a public, senior college located in the Bronx that is part of the City University of New York (CUNY), today announce the establishment of an Interactive Digital Center (IDC) as part of Lehman College’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies. This IDC will support the training of new Virtual and Augmented Reality professionals as well support the development of VR and AR applications that will assist in teaching Lehman’s students. The new program will be housed in the College’s satellite campus, CUNY on the Concourse.

As established industries continue to be disrupted by technological advances, workers who have been displaced will need retraining to find a new trade. The Virtual and Augmented Reality industries are quickly growing and require an infusion of talent to meet the market’s demands, which some project to be around $150 billion by 2020. Additionally, EON Reality’s seventeen years of experience in using Virtual Reality for training and education will empower Lehman to create VR learning modules to help train workers for other industries.

“Lehman College is a perfect partner for EON Reality,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “New York City is a place where our unique combination of training and education can make a difference in people’s lives, especially when combined with Lehman College’s expertise. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality lets people learn by doing. This speeds up the entire learning process, improves retention, and helps learners make the right decisions in stressful situations. This technology is perfect for the School of Continuing and Professional Studies in one of the world’s most dynamic cities.”

“This vital partnership with EON Reality, is but one example of how Lehman is cementing its place as the most important, mission-critical senior college of The City University of New York,” said José Luis Cruz, President of Lehman College. “This effort will provide invaluable state-of-the-art experiential training to students of our School of Continuing and Professional Studies—positioning them well for the opportunities of the burgeoning VR/AR industry.”

The first phase of the IDC is a Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality training facility and development lab, which will train future VR and AR professionals. Students will engage in a yearlong program that involves three months of classroom training followed by seven months of project-based learning that includes project work done for real customers. Additionally, the facility will include an Icube Mobile, a four-wall immersive Virtual Reality room, that will enable the students to experience and test their creations.
The IDC will open in the second quarter of 2017 and is now accepting applications. For more information please visit: www.eonreality.com.
