"When my dad found an ad for the ECU Motorsports course, I knew it was for me."
"I liked the fact that you could focus on the particular aspect of motorsports that you wanted to be involved in. Also, students have access to one of the best workshop facilities in the country, as well as lectures who a keen to help out with Innovative concepts. My greatest achievement so far would be being appointed the Head of Engine Development on the Edith Cowan Universities Racing team."
