Director’s Statement

Welcome to the Creative Media Technology programs offered by SAE. These programs are directly relevant to the expressed needs of the ‘infotainment’ industry and are currently available at most SAE centers around the world.

These courses bring together the various aspects of state-of-the-art communications technologies and the creative thinking of the cultures in which they operate. They provide hands-on opportunities for students to discover effective ways of building careers in audio engineering, multimedia, digital film and 3D animation. Further, they have been structured to cultivate the mutual interests and concerns of creative media students because I believe that is the direction for the future.

When you earn your diploma or degree from SAE you will have had opportunities to network with others who, with you, may well become the industry leaders of the future. So, I encourage you to take full advantage of the opportunities and unique experiences that SAE has to offer and wish you the best of luck in your chosen career.
