Course Deliverance


Students will receive immense knowledge through a 100% online and asynchronously program, providing flexibility of time management whereby students can attend to coursework at any time of day/night or weekends (24×7).

The course utilizes traditional university terms (semesters of 12 weeks) and is structured accordingly. So, the course delivery sits in a flexible middle ground between the structure of set class times and attendance and the open-ended system of self-paced independent study courses.

Each course is instructor-led by credentialed professors with industry experience with a maximum enrolment of 30 students. Guided discussion, interaction/engagement, assistance/support, and grading/feedback will be done with your professor weekly as the course proceeds.

Courses typically consist of a mixture of weekly threaded discussions, reading materials, iLabs (ECCU’s online virtual platform to practice), presentation support (powerpoint and/or video), quizzes/exams and/or research projects/papers.
