Student stories

  • Master of Environmental Science student, Patricia Ngati

    Patricia Ngati

    ECU Master of Environmental Science graduate

    I was interested in a Masters program that would broaden my view on environmental issues

    I was excited to find that ECU offered exactly what I was looking for as the units in the Master of Environmental Science program are multidisciplinary, covering areas ranging from science to business.

    The work integrated learning also attracted me to this course as it offers a good platform to transition into the working environment and an opportunity to apply the skills that I will have gained. So far, the course has been amazing!
