Study at Coyne American Institute

Profile of Coyne American Institute

The Coyne American Institute began in 1899, when it was established as the Coyne Electrical School of Chicago. It existed for over fifty years as a first rate family-operated institution, and as its reputation grew, became one of the largest and most famous schools of its kind in the nation. In its early years the school primarily trained electricians, but by the 1930s had added HVAC-R training and radio repair to its curriculum, and by the 1960s, television repair. By 1970, the Coyne Electrical School had merged with another school, the American Institute of Engineering and Technology, to become Coyne American Institute. Today, the Institute spans two Chicago campuses. The main campus concentrates on trades-related technical career training, whereas the "Loop campus", established in 2004, focuses on training for burgeoning careers in health-related fields.
