"I chose ECU because of the excellent reputation it enjoyed in the field of Cyber Security"
I've always had a keen interest in the field of computer sciences and I found cyber security to be a highly dynamic and challenging discipline. Having decided to study Cyber Security, I chose ECU because of the excellent reputation it enjoyed in this field. My study experience here has been great and has presented me with a number of opportunities to build my career. The annual ECU Science Careers Fair was a great opportunity to meet and network with representatives from leading organisations such as Deloitte, KPMG and PWC and government agencies. I have found the lecturers at ECU to be very helpful and supportive and they helped us gain the skills required to make a successful transition from study to the workplace.
"It was highly recommended by colleagues working in elite sport to strongly consider ECU."
I chose to study a postgraduate degree in Strength and Conditioning at Edith Cowan University to improve my instructive skills as a sport performance coach with The Oklahoma City Thunder. During the vetting process for a master's program, it was highly recommended by colleagues working in elite sport to strongly consider ECU. After doing my own investigation, it was an easy decision.
The degree is available online with a two-week on-campus practicum component, and offers a great learning opportunity to explore both the coaching and scientific side of strength and conditioning. The practicum was a once in a lifetime experience where I was able to establish a worldwide network of some of the brightest minds in the industry. During the course of my studies, I have learned skills that are applicable to my work as an Athletic Performance Coach in the NBA, and beyond.
