Engineering students at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) are reimagining the future of learning by using the metaverse to design what the campus might look like in 2050.
The common core course held in the spring semester, Engineering Team Design Experience, used a platform called Spatial, which allows users to create shared virtual spaces.
One student predicted that by 2050, half of the campus would be under water while the other half would float above the sea. Another envisioned that Hong Kong’s ageing population meant that the future school would need to provide infant-care facilities in hopes of encouraging students to become parents.
