Join the ranks of forward-looking, innovative academic institutions.
Unity is proud to recognize academic institutions leading in the fields of 2D, 3D, VR, AR and Unity education. Unity Academic Alliance (UAA) members are some of the world’s most forward-looking, innovative and experienced academic institutions. Join them to demonstrate your institution’s commitment to this expansive field of interactive media, technology and innovation.
Unity’s Academic Alliance is a consortium of post-secondary education institutions that are committed to advancing their students’ and faculty awareness, skills and inspiration for creating immersive experiences in 2D, 3D, VR and AR. To this end, Unity Academic Alliance members provide their students Unity education in their curriculums and programs, and offer Unity certifications. 2019 marks the global launch of the Unity Academic Alliance.
Unity Academic Alliance membership is extended to post-secondary education institutions that feature Unity in their degee-seeking curriculums, have at least one Unity Certified Instructor (UCI) on campus or are currently working towards developing a UCI, and offer Unity certifications to their students.
