Connecticut School Of Electronics
 
My name is Bill Mazeika
After graduating from Hamden High School in 1972 (53rd out of 767 students), in Hamden, CT,
I attended CSE - Connecticut School Of Electronics in New Haven, CT
 
I believe that the 1960s through the 1980s was truly the golden age of electronics.
Designing and building circuits using transistors, capacitors, and other components was fascinating and rewarding.
It was a time when it was possible and economical to troubleshoot equipment down to the component level.
That time period also included a huge growth in computers.  They were showing up in businesses all over.
Not the table top PCs of today, but systems that would fill a room.
If you were a master of the 7400 series of Integrated Circuits (ICs),
and understood Binary Code, you could take an oscilloscope and and trace errors right down to the chip level.
You could change a $5 IC and get a $100,000 system back up and running.
I had the chance to work for one of the great computer companies of that time: Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC).
But I'm getting ahead of myself - and that is another story.
Back on point...

I recently found my old CSE Catalog from 1971
It brought back a flood of wonderful memories.
What a great place it was to learn electronics in a practical way that would give you a marketable skill.
It was a 2 year program.  I graduated 1st out of a class of 30.
Unfortunately CSE no longer exists.  It was eventually bought by Porter & Chester Institute,
moved to a new facility, and lost it's identity.
If you are an alumni of CSE, I would love to hear from you.  Especially the Clase of 1974.
