Student stories

  • Laurence Da Luz

    Laurence Da Luz

    ECU Computer Science graduate

    I worked with the WA police to create software that will have real community benefits

    I was really impressed with the number of computing labs and the 24/7 accessibility at ECU. I didn't expect to be able to work for real clients during my time at uni, so was surprised when I was given the opportunity to develop software for the WA Police Air Wing.

    We developed a mobile phone app that could assist police in search and rescue missions. We were able to work with them on the design and then able to test the app in the field using the Police helicopter. The experience and recognition has been invaluable.

  • Claudia Muller

    ECU Counter Terrorism Security and Intelligence graduate

    I consciously chose ECU because its offering was unique

    I've always been interested in Intelligence and was delighted when I found ECU's Bachelor of Counter Terrorism Security and Intelligence course. I chose ECU because its offering was unique. The lecturers for the Bachelor of Counterterrorism, Security and Intelligence are also world-class. They have each had successful careers in intelligence and/or security, and are truly passionate about their subject areas.

    ECU Sport, Recreation and Event Management

    When I enrolled at ECU, little did I know that it would lead to me being a part of something historic

    In my last semester of my course I got an industry placement in the Events Department of the Fremantle Dockers Football Club.

    Due to my positive work ethic, I was offered casual employment. In the lead-up to Grand Final I was suddenly asked to fly to Melbourne to fill in for a permanent staff member. I was in charge of managing security, caterers and audio technicians. All the skills and theory I picked up in my years at ECU helped me play a part in running the biggest function the club ever had – their historic first grand final.
