Study Data from National Polytechnic Institute Provide New Insights into Engineering Education (Virtual Visit at Palacio de Bellas Artes of Mexico for Engineering Education)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Data detailed on Engineering Education have been presented. According to news reporting originating from Mexico City, Mexico, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Virtual environments are head-referenced computer displays that give users the illusion of displacement to another location. They have potential uses in applications ranging from education and training to design and prototyping."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from National Polytechnic Institute, "In this paper a virtual visit at Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico is described. The Palacio de Bellas Artes is the biggest and the most important cultural center in Mexico City which has halls for exposing pictorial and sculptural works and it shelters the National Theater and the National Museum of Architecture. The interior of the building is decorated with murals painted by the most prominent Mexican artists. The whole place is a place of culture. The application is educational software developed by computer engineers that allows users to visit this cultural place from any part of the world. The modeling of the building is accomplished by the use of three-dimensional techniques and online services. The virtual visit is not panoramic and the user can get around the scenarios that have a texture that allows the virtual world to be more real, therefore, the view is more attractive to the visitors."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The software is an important contribution for education because it allows the knowledge of one of the most important cultural contents in the world via Internet."
