World Ready experience
Don't just take our word for it! Here's what some of our students have to say about why they chose to study at ECU.
"I worked with the WA police to create software that will have real community benefits"
I was really impressed with the number of computing labs and the 24/7 accessibility at ECU. Not only did they provide me with all the resources I needed to succeed at university, the atmosphere allowed me to make great friends and enjoy my study.
I didn't expect to be able to work for real clients during my time at uni, so was surprised when I was given the opportunity to develop software for the WA Police Air Wing.
We developed a mobile phone app that could assist police in search and rescue missions. We were able to work with them on the design and then able to test the app in the field using the Police helicopter. The experience and recognition has been invaluable.
"Studying Criminology & Justice at ECU can prepare you for a wide range of occupations"
This course takes learnings from fields like Psychology, Social Science and Forensics and applies them to the world of crime. ECU Criminology & Justice student Declan Brooks-Crew tells us more.
"ECU offers a high level of support for my studies"
The skills I have developed throughout my time at ECU have been invaluable. I was fortunate enough to complete an internship within the ECU’s Corporate Marketing and Events Team, which gave me the opportunity to apply my learnings from my studies in a real world environment.
Balancing family, work and study has been the biggest obstacle during my studies, however ECU offers a high level of support to enable me to keep pursuing my studies and move forward with a smile on my face.
