The Future is Here: VR Comes to UTSOA

August 5, 2016

The School of Architecture prides itself on providing students with an education rooted in tradition. With a heavy focus on design, and studios that emphasize hand drawing and modeling, UTSOA has a time-honored curriculum that truly sets us apart. At the same time, our leadership and faculty have always embraced tools that advance design education and the field at large. Beginning with the Texas Rangers in the 1950s, UTSOA faculty have been early adopters of new modes of thinking and technology.



Last semester, the school began integrating virtual reality (VR) into select courses. This exciting new tool allows students to engage with their designs in unprecedented ways.



Robert Stepnoski, Senior Software Developer-Analyst at UTSOA, has been instrumental in incorporating VR into our curriculum. We asked him a few questions to learn more:



What exactly is virtual reality?
