Mission Statement

SAE Institute's mission is to provide world-class education and training in the audio engineering and creative media sectors. It's great that you are considering SAE Institute to further your education. Our courses are a well-balanced combination of theoretical and practical subjects; after all we have been doing this for over 30 years. I have always insisted that all my courses should have a large "hands-on" component and indeed the majority of your practical time is on an individual basis something no other school to the best of my knowledge can claim.
