"The diversity of my course allowed me to discover what I'm really passionate about."
"Going into the course, I didn't realise that there would be such a great mix of practical and theoretical units. One week I'd analyse my own DNA, the next I'd study the cultural impacts and relevance of science. I even had the chance to implement a research project into skin cancer! I've truly gained an in-depth knowledge across a range of science disciplines."

The Faculty of Health, Engineering and Science is ECU’s largest faculty, with more than 8,000 students from Australia and overseas choosing to study one of our degree programs, either locally or with one of our partner institutions abroad. We are ECU’s leading research faculty, undertaking more than seventy per cent of all research at the University, which in turn is used to inform our degree programs.
The Faculty of Health, Engineering and Science is located on ECU’s Joondalup and Mount Lawley campuses and is fortunate to have access to many state-of-the-art facilities ensuring our students and researchers have access to the latest equipment within their fields. Some of our facilities include:
- nursing simulation suites;
- motorsports facility;
- digital forensics laboratories;
- civil engineering laboratories;
- biomechanics laboratories;
- computer and network security laboratories; and
- aviation simulation laboratory and aircraft.
We are proud to be recognised as home to the Electron Research Institute, ECU Security Research Institute and the Edith Cowan University Health and Wellness Institute. We are also home to many highly productive research centres and groups including the Centre for Communications Engineering Resarch, the Centre for Ecosystem Management and the Child Health Promotion Research Centre. Our researchers are encouraged to explore the benefits of cross-disciplinary research, an approach that has already yielded benefits.
