SAE Institute expands to South African capital

With the opening of the 49th college in Cape Town, South Africa, SAE are approching the magic mark of 50 SAE institutes worldwide. SAE Cape Town will be housed in a landmark building situated in the heart of Cape Town’s business district. Based on three floors, SAE Cape town is home to a state of the art recording studio, an advanced computer centre and two fully-equipped lecture halls. The first diploma intake for Audio Engineering, Digital Animation and Multimedia and Web Development will commence in July, with courses such as Electronic Music Production and the Digital DJ course set to launch later in 2008. SAE Cape Town is also set to offer their pioneering Film diploma in 2009, offering facilities and lecturers to students looking to enter South Africa’s dynamic film industry.
“Cape Town, as a cosmopolitan, world famous city, is clearly the most logical entry point for SAE into the African market,” says Pier Paolo Merlo, SAE Cape Town’s Business Development Manager. “A truly unique institution with a formidable global reputation, SAE Institute is set to boost South Africa’s creative industries whilst providing pioneering technology for the country’s students. With their commitment to world-class technology and a practical, hands-on curriculum, the opening of this world-class academy should be a key milestone in South Africa’s creative evolution."
SAE founder Tom Misner: “When I opened the first SAE Institute over 30 years ago I had big plans for the future. At the time we were the only place to train students about sound and recording, and from that little acorn we’ve grown into this mighty oak tree. But it’s not just about sound and recording anymore. SAE Institute are world leaders when it comes to training students in a wide range of creative disciplines, all the way up to degree standard.”
