View Full Version : Schools teaching XSI
I've been dabbling with the various demos and have decided to take the XSI plunge (student version). I am looking for a school on the east coast (US) teaching XSI that I can attend after getting my Multimedia degree (next winter).
Anyone know of any?
but I believe this is inaccurate and not up to date. Perhaps ask SI edu, there are surely more
this list is smaller than even sidefxs :(
I reviewed this list the other day and thought there must be more as well. I sent an email but haven't recieved a response yet. Baltimore and Savannah versus 15+ canadian locales... something is wrong with this picture. If anyone is aware of any other east-coast schools, please let me know, I'm beginning to wonder if I will get a response from softimage.

Here a bit more, but the list is also not complete:
I got an email back from SI because it interested me as well and the answer was that these are just the Softimage Authorized Training Centers and the Academic Partners. These are the schools that use the Softimage curriculum. And they do not list all the schools that have purchased XSI.
The SI Training Centers list seems about the same length as years ago but the SI Academic Partners list of schools used to be MUCH MUCH longer :hmm:
A search doesn't reveal much either for schools on the east coast I just get training centers...
Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Perhaps email SI and ask for schools that are at least using XSI in their curriculum or perhaps look at the SI Softimage Authorized Training Center list or the training center list Raffael pointed out and add that education onto your current studies or onto a school program that may be flexible in allowing you to use what ever tool you want in most 3D classes.
PS If degree porgrams are the interest only a very few of those CDN schools listed offer degrees, but I know Sheridan now offers a bachelors :) No Canadian School I know of offers a masters in this field or else I would have saved my $ and gone two years ago)
Thanks again folks,
I have been phoning the colleges in my area and most of them are in-fact removing 3d from their cirriculum in the future. I find this strange, but that is exactly what occured in my current program. More than half of my classmates (including myself)chose to attend NEIT to get our feet wet in 3d. They removed 3d from the cirriculum and replaced it with quark right before classes began. The reasoning was that the "local industry" is not interested in the skill set. However after further scrutiny I have determined that it was dropped because the professors couldn't keep up with the students.
Some of the more prominent universities claim that the skills require more classes to teach effectively than an associate or bachleors degree can devote to a single program. I really wish there was a film school like the Vancover Film School in Boston or NY.
I'm beginning to think I should swap coasts (and countries).

I agree about most if you change the word "couldn't" in the above statement to "wouldn't" ;)
Good luck with your search and studies.
Well wouldn't would apply to some, but some just didn't have the aptitude/time to focus on it. Most teach various applications (Flash/After Effects) no 3d specialist... oh-well
