A new collaboration is allowing University of Nebraska-Lincoln students to create and venture into virtual reality worlds.

The special topics course combines computer science and engineering talents from the College of Arts and Sciences and theater talent from the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts' Carson School of Theatre and Film. It is led by Chris Bourke, assistant professor of practice in computer science and engineering; and Steve Kolbe, associate professor of theater and film.
