"Landing a full-time job before I'd even graduated makes me very proud"
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.
"I chose ECU because of the excellent reputation it enjoyed in the field of Cyber Security"
I've always had a keen interest in the field of computer sciences and I found cyber security to be a highly dynamic and challenging discipline. Having decided to study Cyber Security, I chose ECU because of the excellent reputation it enjoyed in this field. My study experience here has been great and has presented me with a number of opportunities to build my career. The annual ECU Science Careers Fair was a great opportunity to meet and network with representatives from leading organisations such as Deloitte, KPMG and PWC and government agencies. I have found the lecturers at ECU to be very helpful and supportive and they helped us gain the skills required to make a successful transition from study to the workplace.
