Bachelor of Technology (Electronic and Computer Systems)

Course code U78

Provides a pathway for students who wish to pursue a career as a technologist in the fields of electronics or computer systems.

Applicants from South West WA will be able to study only the first year (up to eight foundation units) of this degree at ECU's Bunbury Campus, which may include attending a short set of lab sessions at Joondalup Campus by the end of each semester. After completing these eight units, Bunbury students will need to attend ECU's Joondalup Campus to complete the rest of their course. This option is only available for domestic students living in the South West region of WA.
