Science at ECU

Science is in everything. Without science, you wouldn't be reading this on your tablet or smartphone. A tablet would still be a flat piece of rock, and we wouldn't have been smart enough to invent a phone.

Science is in everything at ECU too. Here, you can study a Bachelor of Science degree and specialise in areas as diverse as Conservation Biology, Cyber Security or Physics. Or how about Marine and Freshwater Biology, Mathematics or Counter Terrorism?

You can see why Science graduates have a wide range of work choices.

Why ECU?

Courses

Our School of Science teaches a wide range of scientific disciplines.

You can select a traditional science subject like Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry, or Physics. Or choose from courses in Computing & Security or Natural Sciences where you'll study emerging disciplines like Counter Terrorism, Sustainability, Cyber Security, or Environmental Management.

Study areas, degrees and majors

At ECU, we group similar fields of work into study areas – Science is one of them.

Within each study area you can choose a degree. For example, in Science this could be a Bachelor of Computer Science or a Bachelor of Sustainability.

For some degrees, you can choose a speciality, or major, like Software Engineering, Conservation Biology or Physics.

Postgraduate degrees involve coursework or research. For example, you can study our Master of Science (Computer Science) by research, or a Master of Environmental Management (by coursework).

stories

  • "I consciously chose ECU because its offering was unique"
    Claudia MullerCounter Terrorism Security and Intelligence graduate

    I've always been interested in Intelligence and was delighted when I found the ECU Bachelor of Counter Terrorism Security and Intelligence. I consciously chose ECU because its offering was unique in that it was the only one for which all units were niche and specific to this area of study. I honestly believe that the lecturers for the Bachelor of Counterterrorism, Security and Intelligence are world-class. They have each had successful careers in intelligence and/or security, and are truly passionate about their subject areas.

    During the final year of my course, I undertook a work placement at Western Power as part of their Security team. I had many opportunities to assist unique projects and present written and audio/visual work to a variety of audiences. I also completed a formal presentation on global and national threat contexts facing the industry. I am really glad I undertook this degree at ECU.

  • "The lecturers are of the highest standard and are always approachable and personable"

    I’ve always been really interested in the natural environment and concerned with the multitude of stresses which threaten its condition.

    ECU’s course offered the perfect avenue to enable me to understand the way catchments and ecosystems function and how we can successfully manage our environment and natural resources.

    The great thing about ECU is the combination of both theoretical and practical course components which I believe will make me highly employable.

  • "Landing a full-time job before I'd even graduated makes me very proud"
    Matthew Putland
    Matthew PutlandBachelor of Information Technology graduate

    I learned the practical skills I needed in class and developed them further with the Work Integrated Learning program.

    Before completing the program I had developed a new passion in accessibility and was offered a full-time position as a Digital Accessibility Analyst.

    I owe my knowledge to ECU's lecturers – their passion made their courses interesting and therefore made you want to learn.
