Our School of Engineering is one of the fastest-growing engineering schools in Australia and in the world's top 175. It's a place where you'll experience world-class engineering facilities in a supportive learning environment.
And you'll gain valuable practical experience in our advanced labs and workshops, and during an industry placement of up to 12 weeks.
Our courses are developed and delivered in close consultation with industry. As well as spending time in lectures and labs, your engineering course will involve up to 12 weeks of practical work experience in the engineering industry. This is a great way to kick-start your career.
Courses have a common multi-disciplinary first year and most have been professionally accredited by Engineers Australia and recognised under the Washington Accord. This means your engineering qualification will be internationally recognised. You’ll be world ready.
Study areas, degrees and majors
At ECU, we group similar fields of work into study areas – Engineering and Technology is one of them.
Within each study area you can choose a degree, for example a Bachelor of Engineering or a Bachelor of Technology.
For some degrees, like a Bachelor of Technology, you can choose a speciality, or major, like Aeronautical, Electronic and Computer Systems or Motorsports.
We also offer Engineering Honours degrees in Civil, Chemical, Mechanical and other disciplines.
And postgraduate degrees are available through coursework or research. For example, you can study our Research Master's degree for a Master of Engineering Science.

"I have found ECU's industry partnerships really valuable"
I was looking to study Civil Engineering and, after touring the state-of-the-art engineering facilities at ECU, my choice of university became really easy.
I am the ECU Campus Representative for Engineers Australia and a General Committee Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology WA Young Professionals that offers a number of networking opportunities.
ECU Engineering also has a strong community feel and there are always opportunities to get involved, including engineering clubs, international study tours, volunteer roles, research and local projects and campus activities. These help you gain lifelong skills.
"The facilities here at ECU are excellent"
Mechanical Engineering student, Robert O'Neil talks about this course and why he chose to study Engineering at ECU.
"I'm pretty sure ECU is the best of the best"
Instrumentation, Control & Automation student, Wai Yan (Vivien) Pang, talks about studying the course with Edith Cowan University (ECU). Vivien chose to study with ECU because it was the only university to offer the Bachelor of Engineering (Instrumentation, Control & Automation) Honours.
She talks about her experiences studying the course and the support she's received from the lecturers. She says the the course teaches her both theory and practice. She has access to the software and applications as well as actual PLC that she would use in real-life manufacturing, when she's out in the workforce.
