AR/VR Engineer Job Description

AR/VR engineers work with augmented and virtual reality systems. Augmented Reality (AR) uses video, 3D animations, text overlays, audio and other computer-generated elements to add more to the user's current reality. He or she is aware of their surroundings, but the system augments their current state. Virtual Reality (VR) essentially transports the user to another place or time.

AR/VR engineers design and develop these systems to create advanced prototypes. They create software and write code for tracking, sensing, haptic and imaging systems. By working with other engineers and scientists, they develop systems for industries spanning video games to medical training and military. Companies in these fields are responsible for producing the AR/VR content, hardware or software, providing a range of options for engineers.
