Dr. Shawn Stafford, director of research and course director at Full Sail University, said this knowledge will help students create solutions to the real-world problems they will face when they enter the workforce.

“At Full Sail University, we encourage our students to not only make emerging technologies solutions for fun or class credit, but also to serve a purpose and make an impact within the community,” Stafford said.
