Elizabeth City State University’s aviation program has been on the move and growing for some time now, but this summer things will change more than ever. The only four-year aviation degree program in North Carolina is about to move to its new campus home.
According to aviation program director, and dean of physical science, mathematics and technology, Dr. Kuldeep Rawat, the program will have its new home on the second floor of the ECSU Pharmacy Complex, soon to be known as the STEM Complex.
“The Aviation science lab and faculty will move to the Pharmacy Complex by the end of summer,” said Dr. Rawat. “The entire second floor will be for the aviation program. In addition, one large room (room 104) on the first floor will be the new Flight Simulator Lab.”
Dixon Hall currently houses the aviation program. Inside the building, there are several aviation labs dedicated to flight training, air traffic control, and Unmanned Aerial Systems, or drones.
