Audio Engineering

Enrolling Now for

September 2015 Intake

Human beings have been making noise since time began. It's a fundamental way we express ourselves - whether it's in singing, dancing, beating a drum, or playing air guitar along with Jimi Hendrix, our lives are touched by music and sound. However, there's more to audio engineering than bands and singers. Practically every movie, TV series or commercial you watch has been shaped by audio engineers.

If you go to a conference, attend an outdoor concert or join a TV/Film Shoot,  you'll find a world in which sound is a dominant and integral part of the experience. SAE has been at the forefront of audio training around the world for more than 30 years. Our courses will teach you how to master sound and use it for what you need.
