Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has become the city’s first university to launch a postgraduate programme in metaverse technology, as higher education institutions race to stay on top of emerging trends that also include Web3.

The one-year Master of Science in Metaverse Technology programme, under the engineering faculty’s computing department, is set to kick off next September, according to PolyU’s website.

It aims to give students an in-depth understanding of “the nature of metaverses” and “the fundamental technology for building metaverses”, learning what is necessary to “pursue careers in start-ups and big players in the metaverse industry”, the school wrote in the programme’s introduction.

The idea of the metaverse, which envisions an immersive virtual world where people can interact through digital representations of themselves, is one of the hottest concepts to have emerged in the tech world in recent years.
