Unreal Engine enables game developers and content creators across industries to realise next-generation real-time 3D content and experiences with greater freedom, fidelity, and flexibility than ever before. UE5 is arguably the world’s most open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool.

Leverage game-changing fidelity

Bring incredibly immersive and realistic interactive experiences to life with ground breaking new features like Nanite and Lumen that provide a generational leap in visual fidelity, and enable worlds to be fully dynamic.

Build bigger worlds

Unreal Engine 5 provides the tools and assets you need to create truly expansive worlds for your players, participants, and stakeholders to explore, using content that scales.

Animate and model in context

New artist-friendly animation authoring, retargeting, and runtime tools—together with a significantly expanded modelling toolset—reduce iteration and eliminate round-tripping, speeding up the creative process.

Unreal Engine is used for

  • Games
  • Film & Television
  • Architecture
  • Automotive Design
  • Broadcast & Live Events
  • Simulation & more

Participant Requirements / Eligibility

These workshops are suitable for SMEs, Sole Traders, Freelancers or employees looking to upskill or cross skill.
