stories

  • "This is definitely what I want to do..."
    Angel JinECU Secondary Education student

    Secondary Education student, Angel Jin switched to ECU to study to become a teacher. This is her (short) story.

  • "I came to realise that ECU had a really good reputation when it came to collaboration with industry."
    Joseph Dowden
    Joseph DowdenBachelor of Computer Science (Cyber Security major) graduate

    During high school while researching courses and universities in my area of interest i.e. Computer Science, I came to realise that ECU offers a great combination of theoretical and applied coursework and had a really good reputation when it came to their collaboration with industry. This led me to enroll for this course. During my final year of study I undertook the WIL (Work Integrated Learning) program and was able to participate in a government placement, an experience that completed my studies perfectly and was the perfect introduction to the industry. It developed my professional persona, introduced me to important connections within the industry and enabled me to practice my technical skills within a professional setting. I began this course with an interest in becoming a software developer, however the course has shaped my interests and I have graduated with a promising future in cyber security.

  • "I chose ECU because it offered fully online units with fantastic student support, which was ideal when I was working full time at the start of my degree"
    Aaron Tucker
    Aaron TuckerECU Finance graduate

    My entire world view has been expanded by studying at ECU. I had no real idea how complicated Finance was before I started. The further into my studies I have progressed, the more I have leant on things I picked up in the first year introductory classes. The skills I have picked up during my course have always had a compounding effect and I now feel comfortable to market myself to employers.

    The lecturers are deeply knowledgeable and very helpful when you have concerns or questions. I have met many fellow students through my studies that I now call friends.

    I can't recommend ECU highly enough, especially given their flexibility and world class facilities.
