The Department of Agricultural Education at the UA is purchasing a VRTEX® virtual reality system to teach welding in a more eco-friendly manner—lowering energy consumption and saving on expensive training materials. In addition to conserving resources, by allowing students to learn real-world skills in a virtual environment this system is expected help students get comfortable with the welding process before turning up the heat—a boon for classroom safety. Through its use in a variety of UA courses, this virtual welding system will provide training for graduate students and undergrads.
