J. Warren McClure School of Emerging Communication Technologies

At their June 21, 2019 meeting the Ohio University Board of Trustees approved the creation of the J. Warren McClure School of Emerging Communication Technologies by combining the J. Warren McClure School of Information Telecommunication Systems and the Game Research and Immersive Design (GRID) Lab.

The McClure School continues to offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in information and telecommunication systems, preparing students for careers in this fast-growing industry. Jobs in the information and telecommunication systems field are projected to grow by up to 30 percent by 2020. If you want a career working with technology, in a business setting, this is the place for you.

The GRID Lab was established in 2005 as a special initiative of the college. The lab conducts research and produces content largely centering on augmented, virtual and mixed reality. In the near future, new academic programs focusing on virtual reality and game design are being planned.
