Waltham, MA, November 05, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- During the International AES Conference in San Francisco last month, the board of governors of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) held a meeting to officially approve the creation of a student delegation at the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University
With its inception into the AES family, CDIA has now entered into an international organization of industry professionals engaged in involved discussions on the cutting edge technologies, market trends and applied techniques. The Audio Engineering Society, now in its sixth decade, is the only professional society devoted exclusively to audio technology. Its membership of leading engineers, scientists and other authorities is felt globally, with sections in 47 geographical areas.
These are huge strides for the Audio Production Program at CDIA. The department will be working closely with the regional vice president and president of AES to develop a series of guest speakers and industry contacts to widen its students’ exposure to the professional world.
“The opportunities for our students to hold elected leadership positions will also help in preparing them for the real world challenges in teamwork, networking and organization,” said Gabe Herman, Associate Program Director. “It looks pretty good on a resume, too.”
The CDIA student delegation is in good company. Other AES schools include American University, Carnegie Mellon, New York University, Emerson College and many more.
The Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University offers intensive, hands-on training in Digital Filmmaking, Photography, 3D Animation, Graphic & Web Design, Audio Production and Web Development. Full- or part-time certificate programs are available at state-of-the-art campuses in Waltham, MA and Washington, DC. Financial assistance and career services are available.
