About ECPI University

Founded in Norfolk, Virginia in 1966, ECPI University demonstrated early on its commitment to forward-thinking, market-based curriculum in an accelerated format and being among the first to offer classes in the growing field of computer programming. The name – ECPI – stands for East Coast Polytechnic Institute, signifying its origin and ongoing commitment to technological advancement in all fields of study.

For nearly half a century, ECPI University was established as a career oriented student centered institution and pursued a path of addressing the needs of students and employers in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

During this time, ECPI University has established a reputation for integrating high-quality instruction with hands on application-based learning. The result: graduates who are job ready for entry level positions in STEM – H careers.

Classes continue to be small, and are led by faculty members that possess both professional experience and academic credentials. Successful student outcomes, including student graduation rates and program-related employment, have always been and continue to be of primary importance.
