02-03.12.2011 - Inauguration of the DS Kulkarni Supinfocom International Campus
The official inauguration ceremony of the Indo-French "DS Kulkarni Supinfocom International Campus” will take place on 2-3 December 2011 in Pune in the presence of Her Excellency the President of India, Mrs Pratibha Devisingh Patil, the Ambassador of France to India, His Excellency Mr François Richier, and the Consul General of France in Mumbai, Mr Jean-Raphael Peytregnet.
The international campus is the result of a unique Indo-French tie-up between the DS Kulkarni Developers, and the Supinfocom group at the initiative of the Grand Hainaut Chamber of Commerce and Industries.
In 2007, the Grand Hainaut Chamber of Commerce and Industries had initiated the alliance of SUPINFOCOM (animation, 2D, 3D and special effects), SUPINFOGAME (video games) and ISD (design), creating the Supinfocom group, located in Arles and Valenciennes.
This 8-hectare campus, which could eventually accommodate up to 1,000 students, already has 350 students of whom 80% are Indian and 20% French.
Through its three courses of excellence (animation, video games and design), "DS Kulkarni Supinfocom International Campus" offers a five-year high-level training programme (taught in English) with a French diploma (recognized by the National Center of Professional Certification).
