"My Masters by Research was hard work but it would have been much harder without the guidance and support of ECU staff and supervisors. They kept me on track, enhanced my research skills and helped me gain employment as a research assistant in the area of Child and Adolescent Health Promotion. Anyone wishing to further their career should consider postgraduate studies at ECU. They’re flexible, supportive and focussed on you achieving your goals."
Masters by Research (Public Health) graduate
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:
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.
