"ECU has helped me realise the type of youth worker I want to be"
My study experience at ECU has been really enjoyable. The lecturers are extremely helpful, providing me with career advice as well as support within the course.
So far, I've undertaken three work placements, and all have been valuable. Not only have they helped me put theory into practice, they’ve also helped me realise the type of youth worker I want to be.
"I've been very impressed with the amazing laboratory facilities here, as well as the opportunities made available to students"
I come from a family of engineers and I'll be a third generation engineer. While I was drawn to mechanical engineering, I was also drawn to technology and programming, so the Mechatronics Engineering course at ECU seemed to be the perfect choice for me.
I was part of a team that competed in the National Instruments Autonomous Robotics Competition and we got to participate in the finals held in Sydney. This was a great opportunity and ECU was the only university from WA that sent teams to participate in the event.
I've also found the lecturers very approachable and supportive. They have an open door policy, which is immensely valuable during projects and competitions.
"The skills and knowledge gained has broadened my horizons"
