ECU supporting the National Careers and Employment Expo

Thursday, 01 July 2010


ECU participated in the 2010 National Careers and Employment Expo (NCEE), held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on 18 and 19 of June.

With more than 11,000 people and 43 schools attending, the NCEE is one of Australia’s largest and most popular career events, providing information for students, graduates, those currently employed, job seekers and those needing career inspiration.

ECU had four interactive displays at the Expo to highlight the wide range of courses and study options available at the University.

Interactive displays included a 'birthing simulator' and 'sympathy belly', provided by the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Postgraduate Medicine; a 'race car simulator', provided by the School of Engineering, and a 'force place', which measures the force caused when a person jumps or steps, provided by the School of Exercise, Biomedicine and Health Sciences.

Also on display were Mac laptops where students could access the internet and learn more about ECU courses and study options.

Postgraduate student Chris Joyce, from the School of Exercise, Biomedicine and Health Sciences, ran the force plate display at the Expo.

“The display gave visitors an interactive insight into the testing behind sports science and was a great opportunity for students to learn about some of the courses provided at ECU."

Students Bola Orundami, from Willetton Senior High School; Chantelle Akkerman, from Kolbe Catholic College and Concy Layet, from Lakeland Senior High School, all received prizes for the biggest jumps over the weekend.
