Elizabeth City State University (ECSU)-Elizabeth City State University, a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina, offers baccalaureate programs in the arts and sciences, professional and pre-professional areas, as well as master's degrees in selected disciplines.

Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Reseaerch (CERSER)- The intent of this research program is to develop an innovative and relevant research collaboration focused on coastal, ocean, and marine research.

NIA-The ECSU NIA Webserver is the central point for the pages documenting the ONR, NASA, and NOAA activities along with the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Reseaerch (CERSER) and the Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the IEEE-GRSS chapter. These programs have been implemented and supervised by Dr. Linda Hayden of the ECSU Math & Computer Science Department.

Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets(CReSIS)- The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) is a Science and Technology Center established by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2005, with the mission of developing new technologies and computer models to measure and predict the response sea level change to the mass balance of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.  NSF’s Science and Technology Center (STC) program combines the efforts of scientists and engineers to respond to problems of global significance, supporting the intense, sustained, collaborative work that is required to achieve progress in these areas.  CReSIS provides students and faculty with opportunities to pursue exciting research in a variety of disciplines; to collaborate with world-class scientists and engineers in the US and abroad; and to make meaningful contributions to the ongoing, urgent work of addressing the impact of climate change.

Office of Naval Research (ONR)-The Office of Naval Research (ONR) coordinates, executes, and promotes the science and technology programs of the United States Navy and Marine Corps through universities, government laboratories, and nonprofit organizations. It provides technical advice to the Chief of Naval Operations and the Secretary of the Navy, works with industry to improve technology manufacturing processes while reducing fleet costs, and fosters continuing academic interest in naval relevant science from the high school through post-doctoral levels

Undergraduate Research Experience in Ocean, Marine and Space Science-The URE OMS program objective is to promote the professional development of minority undergraduate students through their participation in ocean, marine and space science research. Each student is assigned to a specific research team, where he/she will work closely with the faculty. In addition, seminars, lunch meetings, and social functions are organized to facilitate undergraduate interaction.

Condor- A management system that provides scheduling policies, priority schemes, resource monitoring, and resource management.  Users submit their serial or parallel jobs to Condor, Condor places them into a queue, chooses when and where to run the jobs based upon a policy, carefully monitors their progress, and ultimately informs the user upon completion.

Beowulf- Design for high-performance parallel computing clusters on inexpensive personal computer hardware. Beowulf cluster is a group of usually identical PC computers running a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) Unix-like operating system, such as BSD, Linux or Solaris.

BOINC- Software platform for volunteer computing and desktop Grid computing. BOINC is designed to support applications that have large computation requirements, storage requirements, or both.
