Cyber Security is a booming industry. By 2020 there'll be a global shortfall of over 1.5 million cyber security professionals. Almost 20% of positions in Australia are going unfilled due to a lack of trained professionals, so our cyber security courses are a great career choice.
"The lecturers at ECU are lifelong professionals who have extensive experience in the subjects they are teaching"
I had heard about ECU's great reputation for offering industry recognised courses and job-ready graduates, and this was a key factor in my decision to undertake study here.
During my study I've found that the lecturers at ECU are lifelong professionals who have extensive experience in the subjects they are teaching, rather than just an academic background. This makes the lectures very interesting, as we get to learn about real world issues and solutions.
The facilities at ECU are very impressive. They have the latest high-end technology, and all of it is accessible to students, which prepares you for the real world. There also are many opportunities for developing important contacts within the industry. I got the opportunity to represent the university at two major industry conferences. This allowed me to develop critical networks in Federal and State law enforcement, as well as private industry.
