Why ECU?

  • "ECU has the best engineering laboratory facilities in Western Australia"
    Wasif Ali

    I chose ECU for its high-quality teaching standards and world-class laboratory facilities. I was interested in mathematics and physics in high school. However, the main inspiration behind choosing electrical engineering was my passion for renewable energy.

    ECU provides a very friendly environment for studies, the classes are smaller which allows lecturers and student to engage in an effective manner. I also joined a couple of academic and social clubs at university and made so many good friends and industry connections.

    I took an internship program in my last semester and I’m still working with that company. It is an amazing experience to realise that the concepts and theories which I learn at the university have numerous applications in real life.

    The best features of Perth are its weather and very friendly people. I like to hang out with friends and colleagues, do rock climbing, go to the beach and play badminton.

    ECU has the best engineering laboratory facilities in Western Australia. I would strongly encourage local and international students to choose ECU and pursue their career in STEM.

  • "If you want a well‑rounded and practical experience, definitely study Engineering at ECU"

    My advice to students would be to study to get a job, not to get a degree. Maximise your opportunities to get experience that will get you a career. So for me, that was participating in Engineering societies, going overseas, joining the Vice‑Chancellor's forum and so forth. All of these gave me interpersonal skills and international experience.

    I was also named the WA Young Professional Engineer of the Year 2018 at the Engineers Australia WA Engineering Excellence Awards.

    If you want a well‑rounded and practical experience, definitely study Engineering at ECU.

  • "I've always had an interest in the environment and chose ECU because it offers hands-on, job-ready degrees"

    I have learnt so much from being out in the field and putting lecture content into practice. I've been lucky enough to get the opportunity to go on a two-week study tour in the Gascoyne region of WA.

    I have also been involved in a number of volunteering opportunities, with Fisheries and Parks and Wildlife and these have been valuable learning experiences.

    I found the lecturers really passionate and knowledgeable about their study area. As part of our third year of study, we have field trips with government departments, such as the Department of Parks and Wildlife. This will also be very useful when applying for jobs in the future.
