New York, NY, April 13, 2016 --(PR.com)-- The VR/AR Association (The VRARA) is pleased to announce that New York University (NYU) has become its newest member.

Both the VR/AR Association and NYU are dedicated to fostering growth and research in the virtual reality and augmented reality communities.

In addition, the Association will help enhance networking opportunities for NYU students in the VR AR industry.

About the VR/AR Association

The VR/AR Association (The VRARA) is an international organization designed to foster collaboration between innovative companies and people in the virtual reality and augmented reality ecosystem that accelerates growth, fosters research and education, helps develop industry standards, connects member organizations and promotes the services of member companies.

“We are exciting to participate in the AR/VR Association University Partner Program” says Ken Perlin, Professor of Computer Science at NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. “The field is moving very rapidly, and this partnership will help our students and faculty connect with industry at a critical time in the evolution of VR.”
