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 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. The interactive sessions during the lecture seminars have been quite informative and provided a friendly environment to exchange ideas.

    I’ve also enjoyed interacting with my course mates from different countries. It’s been great to share experiences with them.
