"From the moment I began my PhD in Environmental Management at ECU, I was impressed by the energy generated by my lecturers and fellow students. It had the feel of a young place, brimming with intelligent people wanting to make a difference. This contrasted to other universities I came across when I was looking for research opportunities - they felt stagnant with old ideas. I believe ECU's enthusiasm for innovative science rubbed off on me, and since completing my studies, I have managed to secure incredible jobs in Canada and now Australia. Not only do my employers appreciate my expertise in the environment, they also utilise my knowledge of how the environment is managed."
