    Matt Wilding

    ECU Exercise & Sports Science graduate

    Meeting the coaches and players has been a childhood dream and to be a part of that team has been life changing

    During my third-year practicum I was able to work with the West Coast Eagles as a player performance analyst and an assistant strength and conditioning coach for the AFLW team. Meeting the coaches and the players has been a childhood dream and to be a part of that team has been life changing.

    ECU Medical Science graduate

    Gaining familiarity with industry standard practices and state-of-the-art equipment was priceless.

    I’m extremely grateful for the opportunities ECU provided me within research and diagnostic environments. This included working in the PC2 labs, which are set-up with ample space for conducting experiments and analysis.

    ECU Environmental Management graduate

    The units I studied were closely aligned to real world applications

    The Environmental Impact Assessment unit required us to review a live project proposal that was up for public review to assess whether it met environmental regulations. It was as if we were acting as the governing body! I also completed practical assessments for the Department of Parks & Wildlife that gave me first-hand experience.
