Ready to get an inside look at GT Computing?
The College of Computing is offering future students a preview of life at Georgia Tech as never before with a new virtual reality experience that takes viewers inside what it means to be an undergraduate at one of the world’s top computing programs.
Available both in full VR as an app for iPhone and Android, as well as plain 360-degree video (see below), the two-minute experience takes viewers through some of the most pivotal aspects of the college experience: academics, research, career preparation—even social life.
The first stop on the tour is the College of Computing’s biannual Career Fair, where more than 100 companies gather each fall and spring to recruit College of Computing students.
Next is a look inside Professor Sonia Chernova’s robotics classroom, where students are learning to teach robots to play soccer, as well as the research labs of world-renowned Professors Thad Starner and Melody Jackson, who work with their students to develop wearable computing devices and new, technology-driven ways to interact with dolphins and dogs.
What college experience is complete without a little fun? VR viewers have the best seat in historic Bobby Dodd Stadium for Georgia Tech’s thrilling, last-second “Miracle on Techwood” touchdown against Florida State in 2015. Finally, the VR tour ends with sunset over the Midtown Atlanta skyline—including the Georgia Tech campus—from a lofty perch among the clouds.
