"Everyone works together for a common learning goal"
Dorian Salzmann
Dorian SalzmannBachelor of Aviation student

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.

As a mature age student, I took the University Preparation Course. I feel my UniPrep lecturers and tutors were very good at setting a positive university framework from early on in the program.

I love being a university student, these memories I will treasure for the rest of my life! I feel so excited about what the future will hold.
