As many as 400 young engineers participating in an international robotics competition will visit East Carolina University on Saturday, Jan. 4 to receive their parts kit and assignment for this year’s robot. The FIRST Robotics Competition is an annual competition that challenges high school students – working alongside professional mentors – to design and build a robot.
Roughly 300 high school students from eastern North Carolina experimented with concepts in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at East Carolina University on Feb. 21, 2014.
The College of Engineering and Technology is a founding partner in the consortium based, Internet-enabled PhD program in Technology Management. At the conclusion of the program, graduates will have developed skills in research procedures, will have acquired expertise in instructional processes, and will be able to provide service to the industrial and educational community.
The program maintains most of the traditional requirements characteristic of advanced graduate study, but is unique in using the resources of a consortium of five universities linked together by alternative communication systems. These member universities have programs staffed by faculty having expertise in many areas of technology.
Four technical specializations are currently available: digital communications systems, construction management, manufacturing systems, quality systems, and human resource development. ECU provides the lead on specializations in digital communication and manufacturing systems. Students identify a “home university” based on their technical specialization and/or geographic location
More details are available on the program by viewing the Application Procedures.
