Student Chapters

SMPTE sponsors Student Chapters at colleges, universities, and institutions where courses are offered in technical areas of film, video and television. Student Chapters provide students with the opportunity to meet industry leaders and professionals, and to interact outside of the classroom with other students and faculty who have an interest in the motion imaging industry. The current Student chapters and their advisors are listed below.  If you wish your Student Chapter to have its own web page, please contact
