ECPI University Opens Campus in North Charleston

Charleston, SC – ECPI University is pleased to announce the opening of a North Charleston campus at 3800 Paramount Drive, N. Charleston, South Carolina 29405.

“We are excited about the new possibilities our central location provides,” says ECPI University Vice President of Strategic Initiatives Sam Dreyfus. “The larger site will allow for the expansion of future programs to support the region’s talent gap and better serve the workforce demands employers are facing with a booming Charleston market.”

The campus currently offers programs of study in nursing, medical assisting, cyber and information security, and engineering technology. It was previously located on Northside Drive.

“ECPI University is designed to support the needs of adult learners, and we enhance the classroom experience with immersive, hands-on labs, patient simulations and virtual reality,” says James Weaver, ECPI University Charleston campus president. “It’s our goal that graduates enter the workforce, they are prepared for careers in technology, nursing or healthcare.”
