Discussion in 'Accreditation Discussions (RA, DETC, state approva' started by Lerner, Nov 16, 2012.
Cleveland Institute of Technology
We had two applicants with degrees from the following mill.
Not to be confused with the very legitimate Cleveland Institute of Electronics.
Isn't that Cleveland Institute of Electronics part of World College?
Yes World College is a subsidiary of Cleveland Institute of Electronics respected DETC accredited College.
CIE is definitely not a mill its been around for many years.
CIT - mentioned in the beginning of this tread is a mill.
They provide an address of another nursing institute and also at times they provide address of U Cleveland.
Oh, how wonderful! Fake engineering degrees! Same potential for lethal mis-use as fake medical degrees.
The bogus school has a template-look about it that I've seen somewhere before. Probably one of a chain of mills under similar ownership. Some serial mill-meisters have 20 or more on the go at the same time, e.g. Salem Kureshi of Pakistan - owner of much-sued Belford U., McFord U., Wilson State U. and about 18 others, including fake accreditors.
Sad. Thanks for the warning.
BSST is the only technical school offering electronics program as they strive to offer there students easy access to information and more importantly a easier path for a JOB and a new future
Send this poster a bill for advertising! If you're talking about (or work for) http://www.baystatetech.org :
(a) They're certainly NOT BY ANY MEANS the only school offering an electronics program
(b) CIE / World College offers accredited degree and non-degree courses in this field
(c) So does Penn Foster - and so do many others
Bay State Tech. may be an OK school - I really have no idea. But it is NOT a degree-granting school and MANY reputable schools have been teaching electronics courses at all levels, practically since Marconi sent the first spark! :sad:
Just to illustrate how LONG electronics schools have been around:
My late father-in-law was born in 1896. He passed away in 1973.
He was involved as a hobbyist with electronics for most of his life. As a young man in the 1920s, he took a correspondence course in radio. I wish I could remember the name of the school. He recalled the enjoyment of staying up all night, building a set, tearing it down and building another.
As time went along, "Papa" expanded his electronic horizons. He kit-built all the test instruments on his bench - VOM, oscillators, signal generators, oscilloscope etc. Always a music-lover, he built more than one or two hi-fi rigs in the 50s and 60s - Heathkits and Allied kits, mostly.
The last kits I remember "Papa" building (when he was around 70 - my current age) were a power amplifier for me and a colour TV (Heathkit) for himself.
So -- electronics courses have been available for 90 years or so and BSST was NEVER the "only school."
Looking for more info
Hey Lerner - you said you had two applicants with degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Technology. I'm trying to learn a little bit more about them. Would you mind sending me an email to tell me more about what that school actually consists of?
