The Aviation Science department at Elizabeth City State University got a major boost last week.
Dr. Harry L. Williams, who began his tenure as president & CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund in January, paid a visit to the rural North Carolina campus.
Williams was given a tour of the flight simulator, air traffic control, and drone labs by Elizabeth City State’s Interim Chancellor Dr. Karrie Dixon.
“We want people to know ECSU is doing some cutting-edge things,” Dixon said.
According to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the organization is looking to further uplift Elizabeth City State University (ECSU).
“This program makes sense for potential, future employees,” Williams told Robert Kelly-Goss of ECSU News.
In March, Goss announced Elizabeth City State University’s aviation degree program was about to fly higher with the inclusion of a bachelor’s degree in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), otherwise known as drones.
