"ECU has supported me all the way"
Arshil JahECU Master of Engineering student

I wanted to choose a university whose foundation is strong. At that point, ECU was one of the few universities in Australia whose Master of Engineering was professionally accredited by Engineers Australia.

Civil engineering is one of the core fields of the engineering industry. The benefit of doing construction projects during your Master's studies is that you can exercise the technical skills learned at university. After completing my engineering practicum, I have been able to secure a position as a part-time Graduate Civil Engineer with a construction firm in Perth.

The first site construction I was appointed at was a bridge construction project in the heart of Perth. Such an opportunity allowed me to not only build my experience as a site engineer, but also to work with a very efficient team of civil engineers and deliver the project.

The journey overall has not been easy, but I learned that you always get help if you ask. ECU has supported me all the way, through continued support of lecturers and through the help of student services.
