EPSRC Vacation Bursary

Following the success of our summer placement students last year [1] [2] we have recruited another student, through the EPSRC Vacation Bursary program, to help develop software to support user interaction within the Fully Immersive Virtual Environment (the CAVE).

Ed Norman, a 3rd year MEng student studying Artificial Intelligence, will join the Design Innovation Research Centre team for 10 weeks this summer to work on Digital Model Interaction: Towards a virtual reality toolbox for BIM data interaction.
