A Message from the President
While a school embodies many tangible things — classrooms, library, laboratories, instructors and students, the school’s enduring character and distinctiveness are not tangible at all, they are a state of mind. Westech College is a place of learners, those who seek and exchange knowledge. We believe in contributing to human progress and happiness.
A warm welcome awaits you when you come to Westech College.
Barry Maleki, Ed. D.
Our mission is to provide an educational link between a workplace that is constantly responding to new demands and a workforce that must constantly address new professional requirements. As the methodology of dealing with fundamental tasks becomes more technologically sophisticated, we continuously analyze such development in order to provide training that will prepare our graduates to perform successfully in the modern workplace.
In order to accomplish our training mission, Westech College has set the following objectives:
- To offer programs of study that cover the evolving technical and production skills employed
in the various fields of business and industry.
- To facilitate professionally seasoned instructors; to maintain a faculty that is able to impart to
learners the principles, attitude and knowledge required of a technical professional.
- To prepare graduates to hone their skills in technology, logical thinking, decision-making and
- To graduate individuals who are able to successfully enter the workforce, while bringing
specific training and learning experiences.
From the beginning, Westech’s philosophy was to have flexible curriculum that is designed to incorporate the most current and widely used technology in the workplace. The faculty continuously updates their programs and designs new ways to improve computer, laboratory and classroom instruction. Continual research and development have become not only a hallmark of Westech College but also an integral part of its training process. Despite the apparent emphasis on technology, Westech College does not operate its instructional programs exclusively on the basis of hardware, software and workplace methodologies; rather,the instructional programs at the college begin and end with people. The central learning process at the College has always been, and will continue to be, its people, the students and their instructors.
After a yearlong process of study and research, and after having settled on eastern Los Angeles County as a highly favorable location, Westech College, a California corporation, opened its campus in Pomona in January 1988.
