Overview

Founded in 2003 by the School’s President, Mr. Sanjay Bavisi, EC-Council University (ECCU) is headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Albuquerque is a charming community nestled in the Sandia Mountains, full of diverse culture and rich tradition located in the heart of the Southwestern United States with a population of nearly 1 million people.

University History

EC-Council University was incorporated in Wyoming in 2003 and licensed by the New Mexico Higher Education Department in 2006. The institution was created to educate and train information security professionals. Information security involves in-depth knowledge of a wide array of hardware and software systems as well as the skills and techniques to negotiate them.

EC-Council, the parent company of EC-Council University, is a world leader in certifying professionals in these skills and techniques. However, EC-Council University President Sanjay Bavisi believes that information security professionals must not only have skills and techniques, but they must be educated to step into leadership and managerial roles in their companies, agencies, and organizations. This belief led to the establishment of the Master of Science in Cyber Security program and the Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security program.

Institutional Values

EC-Council University places particular value on the qualities of ethical behavior, innovative thinking, critical thinking, scholarship, and leadership. In a field as narrow and yet as far-reaching as information security, these values promote and advance the ultimate goal of educating information security experts, preparing them to make the world safer and more secure for everyone.

By incorporating these values with our course content and assessment measures, the educational environment becomes a dynamic and multi-dimensional process that empowers our students to become critical and innovative thinkers and research-oriented problem solvers who embody high ethical standards, leadership skills and an understanding of the global impact of their work.
