The esteemed Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) held a luncheon for their Life Members in San Diego in early March. The Life Member status for IEEE is awarded to members who have been an active part of the organization for a certain number of years while maintaining a positive status within the IEEE community. The Life Member Association invited the President of Coleman University, Norbert Kubilus, to be a Keynote Speaker for this event and to discuss the dedication of the University to fostering technology development in San Diego. The agenda for the luncheon speakers included topics such as robotics in military and commercial fields, renewable energy, automotive developments, and the benefits of increased technology in medical fields. In his Keynote, the President reflected on the history of Coleman in San Diego and the legacy that the university has maintained as an influencer in technology. The President then outlined the steps being taken to bring the latest developments in Software Development and Cybersecurity to the Coleman campus and integrate them into the curriculum. Mr. Kubilus discussed the efforts being made at Coleman to bring experiences to its students that enhance the curriculum, which is continuously developed through input from professionals in technology fields and the instructors at the university. The keynote closed with an invitation from the President for the Life Members to visit the Hornet’s Nest Indoor Drone Testing facility run by ENVI. The members were excited to be given the opportunity to see for themselves an example of the technological developments that Coleman is fostering and the extracurricular experiences that are available to its students.
Who likes video gaming? We do! In August, students from Coleman University’s Game Programming Development and Design program, members of San Diego’s International Game Developers Association, and enthusiastic gamers from the San Diego area converged on campus for 3 days of game development and play.
Teams brought their own laptops, desktops and gaming accessories, or made use of Coleman’s Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets to design and develop unique games based on the theme “Group Think.” See the groups pitch their gaming idea presentations and watch interviews with participants here.
At the end of the event, gamers voted on each other’s games and awards were given to the following:
Grand Prize – Synch or Swim
Best Design – Holes of Glory
Best Art – Band Kids
Best Audio – Pizza Cat
Best Abstract – Get to Work
Judge’s Award – Twitch Plays Trivia

Led by Dr. James Burns, co-founder of the Electric and Networked Vehicle Institute (ENVI) and founder of electric trucking start-up TransPower, Bradley Risse, Team President Coleman University and Nick Cantrell, Team Captain, San Diego Mesa College, the group went sub-to-sub against 46 formidable opponents from all over the globe in the 19th annual International RoboSub competition that was held July 25-31, 2016 at the SSC Pacific TRANSDEC in Point Loma, CA. This year marks the team’s first entry in the competition. The finals event can be viewed on the RoboSub website.
“We believe this student-run effort produced several firsts and best practices – intercollegiate teaming and cooperation within the San Diego unmanned community, novel use of gaming and VR technologies, and unique application of deep-learning techniques, thanks in part to a gift received by Coleman from IBM,” said Dr. Burns, ENVI. “With continuity and experience, this team will undoubtedly have a strong chance of a top 10 finish next year.”
The student-designed and built-from-scratch autonomous robotic submarines are required to complete a difficult series of visual- and acoustic-based tasks, which simulate the work required of robotic subs in many facets of underwater activity. In addition to a team introductory video, teams were required to submit a journal paper that outlined their design strategy, vehicle design and experimental results.
“Coleman is proud to support its students and the ENVI volunteers in their first RoboSub competition,” said Norbert J. Kubilus, President and CEO, Coleman University. “We look forward to the group’s future collaborations on developing unmanned vehicles that have practical applications.”
The Coleman University Fall graduation ceremony will take place at 9:00 AM on Saturday, October the 1st, at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion. Graduates: Applications are due by September 16, 2016. Please see Student Services for more information.

A big thanks to Career Services for setting up another job fair, set for September 15th at 4:30pm in Hopper Hall.
Held twice a year, our job fairs are a way for students to apply to jobs in their field, meet potential companies, network with other students and get a feel for the industry.
Many companies come to meet prospective students. They love to speak to everyone, show what their company is about and found out about students if they’d be a good fit for their company. Many students receive a job offer from this event, and for many others, it’s a good way to get your resume out. Most companies are also looking for candidates to hire for a later date.
During the Job Fair, students will also be able to enter a raffle to win awesome prizes! Be sure to come by and check it out!
