ECU Bachelor of Aviation student

"Everyone works together for a common learning goal"

The Bachelor of Aviation course is the only one of its kind offered in Western Australia. The facilities at ECU are amazing, the way that everyone works together for a common learning goal is very apparent. Many people notice this if they have studied at different universities.

A work placement with Virgin Australia Regional Airlines gave me an insight into their operations department, an amazing experience to see how they handled problems. There are so many people working behind the scenes that you don’t normally consider when a passenger boards a flight.
