"Security is an intriguing field, and so relevant to our current global situation."
"I've always found politics, international relations and national security fascinating subjects so Security at ECU was made for me! The skills and knowledge that I've gained have developed my understanding of the security environment. There's a strong national and international focus, because the issues we face at home are common to much of the world. This knowledge, and these skills, can be applied practically and professionally in security related careers."

Consequently, the School of Computer and Security Science offers a variety of courses from undergraduate through to doctoral level, across the discipline areas of computing, information science and security science.
Our school has a strong international teaching program, both on-campus and through our offshore partners.
Our staff and research students are actively engaged in research across the school’s discipline areas, exploring a diverse range of topics.
