It was June 1976, when the Australian Producer-Engineer, Dr.Tom Misner started the School of Audio Engineering (SAE). His reason for this endeavour is surprisingly quite simple. When he wanted quality talent in audio engineering, to his shock, he found that there was no college in the world offering anything related to audio education. Thus SAE came into existence. And the rest, as they say is one big history. Headquartered at the Bryon Bay, Australia, SAE has Dr.Tom Misner at the realm of its activities. He has developed a comprehensive curriculum that assures student hands-on knowledge and intense training. SAE has a worldwide network of 49 colleges in 22 countries across 4 continents. The largest Audio, Multimedia and Digital Film Making college in the world, it owns the second oldest and the world's largest audio studio - Studios 301.
In India, SAE International is represented by Access Atlantech Technologies (India) Private Limited (AAT). Incorporated in 1999, AAT has world-class education in media as its core agenda. The education and training imparted at AAT covers creativity, management and content production in the media and entertainment fields. AAT started operations in June, 2000 at Chennai and since then has established a significant presence in Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore.
By tying up with SAE International, AAT was able to make the pioneering move of introducing India to world-class media education. The success of the venture expanded the scope of things. Today AAT is going beyond education and training and is spreading its wings to cover various facets of the media business.
