our colleges SAE INSTITUTE SAE Institute was established in 1976 as the world’s first practical audio engineering school to address a growing demand for skilled audio engineers. The mission of our first campus was to provide aspiring audio engineers with the best practical and hands-on education possible, a creed we have upheld to this day. Whilst audio engineering remains a very important part of SAE Institute‘s objective, times have changed and SAE Institute has now expanded its curriculums to include other creative media studies. SAE Institute has since grown to become a successful global network of campuses offering programs in audio engineering, digital film making, multimedia and animation, all delivered using SAE Institute’s proven teaching method which combines sound theoretical knowledge with invaluable hands-on training. The SAE Institute global network now consists of more than 50 campuses in over 20 countries, spanning 5 continents.
