U of T students receive $4M investment in AR training from Modiface

April 13, 2017

Modiface, a startup company in Toronto, has invested $4M to train University of Toronto students in augmented reality. The investment will reportedly be used to fund research and internships for undergraduate and graduate students. “The biggest limitation to how much we can grow is our ability to recruit and find augmented-reality engineers,” commented U of T professor and Modiface CEO Parham Aarabi. “Finding engineers who are experts in all of these domains is actually quite difficult. The university provides an excellent academic base, but we often find they (students) need more hands-on experience.” CBC
