You are viewing indicative tuition fee information for domestic students. If you are an international student click here to calculate indicative tuition fees for your course.
Indicative tuition fees provided are estimates based on information available to Edith Cowan University at the time of their calculation and are presented as a guide for comparative purposes only. The fees which are ultimately applicable are subject to change. ECU makes no representations or warranties in relation to the reliability of these estimates or the methodologies used for their calculations.
I acknowledge that I understand that these tuition fees are indicative only and are subject to change.
Commonwealth supported: AUD $8,613.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $19,850.00
There are two types of domestic tuition fees as displayed above. Read the following information to identify which indicative tuition fee amount may be applicable to you.
Under this arrangement, the Australian Government contributes towards your tuition fees and you are responsible for the remaining tuition fees, called your 'student contribution'.
You are eligible to be Commonwealth Supported if you are studying:
You must also satisfy ONE of the following criteria:
Please note that eligibility for a Commonwealth Supported rate of fees does not determine your eligibility for a Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) loan. For further details and to obtain a more accurate indication of fees, please use the Fees Calculator.
Domestic tuition fees (unsubsidised full fee amount) will be applicable to you if you are not eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place.
Domestic tuition fees also apply to non-award courses (courses or programs that do not lead to a higher education award, but are studied for general interest, professional purposes, or to gain entry to a degree program through an alternative pathway). More about non-award courses.
We recommend you visit our Fees Calculator for a more comprehensive view of the cost of courses and units.

Offers a synergistic combination of electronic engineering and computer science.
Computer systems engineers have a wide knowledge of digital and analog electronic systems and a detailed understanding of computer architecture, software design and hardware-software interfacing. They are involved in all aspects of computing, from the development of individual microprocessors to the design of personal, mainframe or supercomputer systems. They are also involved with digital and mixed signal circuit design, real-time and embedded system implementation and software engineering.
Students will graduate conversant in the fundamental physical sciences, computer architecture, digital electronics, data communications, interfacing, real-time and embedded systems, robotics and software development.
The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, students will graduate with strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects.
This course is Commonwealth Government Supported for eligible students.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
This course is accredited by Engineers Australia.
Students will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 4 (ENS4111).
Employment opportunities include the development and design of microcomputer systems, computer networks, complex real-time systems, high performance processors, multimedia systems, control and automation.
Computer Systems Engineer, Electronic Engineer, Embedded Systems Engineer
Students whose performance over the four years of the course is of a high standard may be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree.
Engineering / Business, Engineering / Laws, Engineering / Science and Engineering (Computer Systems) / Computer Science double degrees are also available in this discipline.
Applicants who do not meet the mathematics pre-requisite for this course should consider applying for the Bachelor of Technology (Electronic & Computer Systems) as a pathway.
This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
