ECSU Alliance faculty stay on top of the most recent tech trends in robotics, virtualization

 

 

LSAMP students at Elizabeth City State University are taught by faculty who remain involved in cutting-edge research on a variety of topics. This in turn helps students stay in touch with current academic trends in fields such as computer science and robotics.ARTSI Alliance

Examples include Dr. Moayed Daneshyari, assistant professor of technology, who is also a faculty member of the ARTSI Alliance (Advancing Robotics Technology for Societal Impact). This project is a collaborative education and research project centered around robotics for healthcare, the arts, and entrepreneurship, and heavily involves ECSU and other HBCUs around the country in its efforts to increase the number of African Americans who study computer science and robotics in college, and encourage them to pursue advanced training in graduate school.

Second_LifeDr. Kuldeep Rawat, associate professor of technology, presented at the spring 2011 UNC Teaching & Learning with Technology conference. This forum to network and exchange information about the effective use of technology for teaching and learning, is hosted in "Second Life" - an exciting new three-dimensional, virtual world in which people can interact as avatars (virtual representations of themselves).

Virtualization of academic meetings and conferences is a new concept that all Alliance students can take advantage of.  LSAMP faculty who stay apprised of such new trends in fast-moving subjects such as these pass on these benefits to their students. At ECSU, there's no risk of Alliance students missing out on new developments in their fields, especially when their professors are on the front lines!
