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's objective, times have changed and SAE has now expanded its curriculums to include other creative media studies.
SAE has since grown to become a successful global network of campuses offering programs in audio engineering, digital film making, multimedia and animation, all of which are delivered using SAE's proven teaching method that combines sound theoretical knowledge with invaluable hands-on training.
In 2002, SAE Institute Byron Bay was launched as our regional head office and is now recognised as a government-accredited, degree granting institution. It serves as a centre of excellence and gives students around the world a unique opportunity to study at a campus that not only offers amazing facilities, but is also situated in an idyllic paradise.
If you would like to arrange a time to come and check out our grounds and facilities, you can book a tour in advance by calling SAE Byron Bay reception on ph: 02 6639 6000. Or if you happen to be in the neighbourhood and haven't booked, but would still like a tour of our campus, the best time to come is after 2pm, when one of our friendly staff will be available to show you around and answer any questions you might have about studying here at SAE Byron Bay.
