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).

  • "I've always had a passion for animals"
    Shanaaz BadatConservation and Wildlife Biology student

    Conservation and Wildlife Biology student Shanaaz Badat talks about her ECU experience.

  • "I worked with the WA police to create software that will have real community benefits"
    Laurence Da Luz
    Laurence Da LuzComputer Science graduate

    I was really impressed with the number of computing labs and the 24/7 accessibility at ECU. Not only did they provide me with all the resources I needed to succeed at university, the atmosphere allowed me to make great friends and enjoy my study.

    I didn't expect to be able to work for real clients during my time at uni, so was surprised when I was given the opportunity to develop software for the WA Police Air Wing.

    We developed a mobile phone app that could assist police in search and rescue missions. We were able to work with them on the design and then able to test the app in the field using the Police helicopter. The experience and recognition has been invaluable.

  • "The benefits of doing a work placement while studying"
    Mason CrawfordComputer Science student

    Bachelor of Computer Science student Mason learnt a lot during his Work Integrated Learning placement and was made to feel like he was part of the team right from the start.
