In 2011, Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) was selected as an Associate Member of the "Multi-Versity” consortium lead by Sloan-C. The "Multi-Versity” consortium is part of Hewlett-Packard’s Catalyst Initiative. The ECSU’s catalyst project - VRLE Lab project - is housed in the Department of Technology, within the School of Math, Science, and Technology.
The goal of this project is to improve quality of computer science and technology (Engineering/Industrial/Aviation) programs by developing HP mobile and remote computing infrastructure that facilitates innovative teaching strategies and promotes 24x7 asynchronous access. The project supported team to redesign computer science, engineering technology, industrial technology, and aviation science courses to integrate flash-based simulations, interactive activities/puzzles, different modes of presenting digital content, and support web-enhanced/online delivery.
In April 2007, Elizabeth City State University received the HP Technology for Teaching grant to integrate mobile technology in classroom. The project emphasizes on importance of providing students equitable access and actively involving them in the learning process. Dr. Kuldeep Rawat and Dr. Mehran Elahi from the Department of Technology (Industrial Technology, Engineering Technology, and Aviation Science programs) are using HP mobile technology in the classroom that is aimed at facilitating new pedagogical approach that promotes active learning.
The primary goal of the Summer Transportation Institute (STI) at Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) is to introduce high school students to the potential career opportunities that exist in the area of transportation.
The NASA MUREP Aerospace Academy Program of Northeastern North Carolina is a collaborative effort between ECSU and the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA). NASA has a long-standing history of establishing effective and school partnerships. Click on the link above for additiona information about this program
ECSU has NC’s only collegiate aviation science program, putting it in a unique position to lead NC aviation education initiatives and provide graduates with the expertise needed by local businesses as well as the emerging UAS industry. This project will strengthen ECSU’s Aviation Science Program (ASP), position ECSU as a hub for aviation education, and lead to increased enrollment, employability of graduates, and regional attractiveness to aviation and emerging Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) businesses.
