Profile: Coleman University
History & PhilosophyIn the 1960s, the founders of Coleman College envisioned an educational institution that would prepare students to participate in the Information Age. They foresaw the unprecedented career opportunities that the use of electronic data processing would create in government, business and industry. In 1963, their vision became reality, and Coleman College set forth on the leading edge of a technological revolution.
The College has maintained its leadership by successfully educating thousands of computer professionals. Through the years, Coleman's academic offerings have evolved continually to address changes in technology and meet the needs of employers. The first campus was located in downtown San Diego, California. There are now two locations in San Diego County, in La Mesa and San Marcos. Both campuses are a short drive from every educational, cultural and recreational center in greater San Diego.
Coleman consistently provides extensive hands-on experience for its students, who have ready access to the latest computer equipment. That's part of the Coleman difference. We expect our graduates to encounter a wide variety of technical events and problems on the job, so it makes sense for them to encounter them first during training.
The College has a large variety of computers, including PC, Macintosh, midrange and mainframe. The equipment and software are updated on a regular basis. The multiple platforms are interconnected via a switched Ethernet backbone to provide students with maximum experience on the most prevalent computer systems used in business and industry.Computer equipment used in the various academic programs include an IBM XSeries 232 mainframe, IBM RISC/6000 Model F30, and over 600 IBM PCs and compatibles. The College's network is a multi-platform, multi-protocol environment.
