About ERC

ERC was established in 1988 by Dr. Y.C.L. Susan Wu, the first woman to be awarded a Ph.D. in Aeronautical Engineering from the prestigious California Institute of Technology (Caltech).

From its humble beginnings in the basement of Susan’s home, ERC has become a thriving engineering, technical, IT, and scientific services company executing work across multiple locations around the United States.  

In 1998, Susan’s oldest son, Dr. Ernie Wu, left his research position at Harvard University to take over as ERC's President and CEO. Kenny Frame joined the ERC Family in 2007 to serve as President. Under Ernie’s and Kenny’s leadership, ERC continues to hire, develop, and nurture our employees, who in turn provide exceptional services to our NASA and the Department of Defense clients.
