About ECPI University

Based in Virginia Beach, VA, ECPI University is currently made up of 12 campuses and an online division. Campuses are located throughout Virginia as well as at sites in Orlando (St. Mary), Florida; Charleston, Greensville, and Columbia, South Carolina; Greensboro, Raleigh, and Charlotte, North Carolina; and San Antonio, Texas. In addition to those 12 campuses, the university's College of Health Sciences offers programs through the Medical Careers Institute (MCI) campuses in four Virginia locations: Newport News, Virginia Beach, Richmond South, and Richmond West.

Among the first postsecondary institutions to offer studies in computer programming, ECPI, which was established in 1966, expanded its programs to encompass such areas as engineering technology, business, criminal justice, and the health sciences. From as Associate of Applied Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography to a Master of Science in System Engineering, ECPI offers a wide range of subjects at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Many of the on-campus programs are also offered online, all with the same quality you'd find in in the classroom - and the online programs even let you accelerate your studies. For instance, ECPI's Master of Business Administration program is offered both fully online in a format that is convenient for many professionals as well as at the Newport News and Virginia Beach campuses.

ECPI develops its programs under the guidance of industry professionals who understand that these fields are growing and will continue to grow. Bachelor's degrees in such areas as cybersecurity, mechantronics, digital forensics, software development, and mobile development help students build the skills needed to enter challenging technical and criminal justice fields, while master's degrees in business administration and business management could ready future leaders in corporate settings.

Weekend classes are available at ECPI's Newport News and Virginia Beach campuses, making it possible to earn your degree in less time. If you're a current or past member of the armed forces, you would choose the best when choosing this university: Military Times has ranked ECPI #1 in the U.S. for educating veterans and military service members. ECPI is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), and several of its programs are accredited by individual bodies, such as the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES), American Culinary Federations, Inc., and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
