Get started with Robotics at Calhoun Community College

Calhoun Community College was founded in 1946 and named after John C. Calhoun, the 7th Vice-President of the United States. He was a War Hawk of 1812, hence the Calhoun athletic team’s names. The Huntsville Campus opened in 2006. The Sparkman Building was originally a Chrysler electronics factory. The building was purchased by Calhoun Community College for $4.5 million, which included $2 million for a 5-year cleanup of the site. The largest of the two-year institutions comprising The Alabama Community College System, Calhoun is an open-admission, community-based, state-supported, coeducational, comprehensive community college dedicated to providing affordable, high-quality and accessible education to individuals in its four-county service area. Offering more than 100 associate degree options and career/certificate programs, Calhoun serves approximately 10,000 students at its 110-acre Decatur campus; its Huntsville/Cummings Research Park site; the Alabama Center for the Arts and at the Limestone Correctional Facility. The college’s faculty and staff are well qualified and remain current in their areas of expertise. Over 80 percent of the full-time faculty possess at least a master’s degree, and approximately 15 percent hold the doctorate. For almost 75-years, Calhoun Community College has been an active member of North Alabama. Graduates of the college permeate the community, and many of them have gone on to complete baccalaureate degrees at other institutions in the area, or have entered the work force after successfully completing programs of study and training.
