The School of Engineering at ECU is the fastest growing engineering school in Australia with an annual growth of more than 20% in the last few years. The School enjoys some of the best equipped hardware laboratories in the nation, with regular multi-million dollar investments into expanding and maintaining its world-class infrastructure.
Students benefit from programs specifically designed for the needs to Australian and Western Australian industry that cover the engineering sciences with rigour and also have a strong emphasis on 'hands on', practical learning experiences. Courses are offered across a wide range of engineering disciplines including chemical, civil, mechanical, electrical power, mechatronics, automation & control, electronics & communications, computer systems, maritime, maintenance, and aeoronautics. The School offers both standard 4-year Bachelor of Engineering courses and a 3+2 model comprising a 3-year Bachelor of Engineering Science program followed by a 2-year Master of Engineering. In addition, a number of aviation courses are also offered that prepare students for professional aviation roles. These features, in addition to a committed and passionate team of academics, mean that the School of Engineering at ECU provides an exceptional environment for the education of graduates well positioned to meet the current and future global challenges of their professions.
ECU is the first university in WA, and one of just six in Australia, to offer a fully accredited Master of Engineering course.
After 18 months of hard work, almost 3000 student hours and a completely redesigned engine block and gearbox, the ECU Motorsport Team’s latest race car ‘Emma’ is ready to roar into action.
Research at the School of Engineering encompasses a broad range of engineering disciplines and allied sciences. This breadth positions us well to undertake research in sustainability engineering, which is multidisciplinary in nature.
Our world-class facilities include purpose-built labs and project spaces. The Engineering building also contains sustainable systems and infrastructure that decrease its carbon footprint, and provide students access to real systems for sustainable energy education.
