The Mission and Goals of CIE
Cleveland Institute of Electronics
(CIE) is a privately owned co-educational technical college
located in Cleveland, Ohio.
The Institute has served an international
student body since 1934. CIE's principal mission is educating
individuals in technical skills through distance education, without regard to race, sex, handicap, creed,
national origin, or age.
CIE prepares its students to become the skilled
technicians and engineering technologists who will solve
electronic engineering and computer technology problems. In order to accomplish
these goals, the college offers two associate degrees and
various diplomas and certificates in electronics and computer technology.
The CIE faculty, staff, and administration
are committed to students who can substitute and/or enhance
the traditional college classroom with independent study
education. This method of instruction allows the individual
student to obtain an education while maintaining family
commitments and present employment or business activities.
Some of the unique students CIE serves include
those in the military, those being rehabilitated, and
those in areas of the world where the access to classroom
education involves an inordinate amount of travel. CIE
seeks to raise the level of productivity of our students,
enhance their employment opportunities, and retrain those
whose skills have become obsolete.
