Following the tremendous success of courses offered at its Dubai hub, SAE Institute, the largest film, audio engineering and animation training provider in the world, is looking at expanding to other countries in the region.
Marco Bettelli, SAE's Dubai gm, said that the SAE Institute's regional campus at Dubai Knowledge Village (KV) has captured the imagination of aspiring filmmakers, animators and music professionals from around the region and is considering opening branches in Middle Eastern countries like Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon.
The establishment of SAE Institute filled the gap that long existed in the region for world-class education in entertainment technology. The interest that we have seen in our courses has been a revelation. We have a vibrant multi-cultural student body including many UAE Nationals, some of whom display outstanding talent and creativity, Bettelli added.
With a rapidly increasing international demand for specialized media and creative technology training programs, SAE has identified Dubai Knowledge Village as a world-class strategic hub. SAE Institute offers a full range of creative media programs at Certificate, Diploma & Degree levels, either individually or in conjunction with it's global partner, Middlesex University.
The main programs being offered from Dubai are audio engineering; digital animation; new media; filmmaking; electronic music producer and an entertainment business program. Students of SAE Institute will have a vast number of opportunities open to them when Dubai's latest film, TV and music production initiative Dubai Studio City becomes fully operational.
Developed over 30 years, SAE courses are focused on delivering solid practical training through innovative teaching techniques, as well as the provision of full access to state-of-the-art equipment. SAE also maintains a strong and growing alumni, as well as an international job placement program for graduates helping them make contacts with a view to securing employment in their respective graduate fields.
