At ECPI University we pride ourselves at not only teaching important vocabulary, theories, and practices, but putting those practices into action. Here are some examples of hands on learning throughout ECPI University campuses.
Newport News Campus – Criminal Justice students present their case study assignments using augmented reality.
Orlando Campus – FBI Agent Alexis Brignoni led a digital forensics workshop which provided Cyber and Network Security students the opportunity to apply an array of techniques to real-world criminal cases.
Columbia Campus – The IT Club held a raffle for two Raspberry Pi systems built by students in the club. One was loaded with Kali Linux software, and the other was built as a retro gaming system filled with thousands of classic games. To demonstrate the system, the library hosted a retro gaming area with a raspberry pi connected to a TV. The draw was magnetic, with students from every discipline excited by the capabilities of the small, hand-built device, and many checked out books on Raspberry Pi from the library display.
Richmond/Moorefield Campus – During a visit to Virginia State Police Headquarters, Criminal Justice students were given the opportunity to complete the VSP standard work performance test that every applicant and basic trooper trainee must pass.
