Course outline

This course will provide an overview about the media technology called Augmented Reality (AR). The project outcome focuses handheld AR, but also other techniques will get explained.

Objectives & Structure

The lectures give a briefing for the project and an overview about the AR technology and several AR concepts. In those primarily theoretical lessons the students will learn to develop and explain a concept for a meaningful application of AR. This means to research, find and analyse potential fields of needs within the Egypt society, which could be solved with AR solutions. The subsequent technical part is the understanding and arranging of current and fitting AR technologies. This means the usage of mashup technology mainly for mobile devices as well as the modifying of several AR technologies.


"AR - Egypt Edition" is a co-operative project of the Media Design Department (MD) and the Faculty of Media Engineering and Technology (MET) of the GUC. The students will work on group projects in a interdisciplinary team of designers (6th semester) and engineers (10th semester), so real life conditions will get trained as well as the capability to learn from the others field. This win-win-situation will also be generated to improve the final result.
