In 1960, the South Australian School of Mines and Industries was renamed the South Australian Institute of Technology (SAIT).

Initially comprised of a single city campus (where City East is now located), additional campuses were opened in 1962 at Whyalla and in 1971 at The Levels (where Mawson Lakes is now located).

In 1991, SAIT merged with the South Australian College of Advanced Education to form the University of South Australia.
