When the leaves begin to change and the air grows cooler for early morning classes, that’s when ECPI University faculty and staff start gearing up for Tech Month.
The university sets aside the month of October to commemorate its history in technology education, encourage the next generation of tech students, and provide awareness of the vital careers that ensure our world’s connection, productivity, and security.
ECPI’s History in Technology
ECPI University is a pioneer in technology education, starting in 1966 as one of the first schools to offer computer programming classes. It was the beginning of the university’s trademark hands-on education model, and ECPI’s longstanding commitment to develop and deliver quality industry-driven technology programs.
ECPI University has grown beyond those early days of programming punch cards, and today offers associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in both Information Technology (IT) and Engineering Technology (ET) at ground campuses in five states, and nationwide with ECPI University Online. ECPI’s College of Technology represents around half of its student population.
The Use of Technology
Technology and innovation are woven into the fabric of the university, from ECPI’s core values to its curriculum development. ECPI integrates thoughtful use of technology in the design of its engineering and cyber labs…but did you know that the university’s nursing programs also benefit from technology? ECPI nursing students have their own innovation incorporated into their program with Anatomage tables, high-fidelity simulations, and even an eHospital.
2023 Tech Month Schedule
October may traditionally be Cybersecurity Awareness Month, but instead of recognizing this one field, ECPI University strives to support all technology education and careers for Tech Month. Now in its second year, ECPI University is celebrating technology with a full month of activities from October 1-31.
To meet an increased interest in ECPI’s technology education and careers, the university has also added an educational component to Tech Month. Through tips, panels, webinars, and a special Open House, interested individuals – no matter the experience level – can feel confident to pursue a tech program that aligns with their interests, schedules, and career goals.
