    Abbie Milne

    Conservation and Wildlife Biology graduate

    "I got real-world experience with dolphins in Monkey Mia"

    I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to work outdoors. I chose the ECU course because of how practical it was. The facilities were great, the lecturers were really helpful and I made life‑long friends.

    I was also able to get real-world work experience with the Department of Environment and Conservation in Monkey Mia at the dolphin reserve. It was one of my favourite experiences throughout uni.

    ECU Mechanical Engineering student
and Engineering Excellence Scholarship recipient

    "When I was awarded an Engineering Excellence Scholarship, it was an offer I couldn't turn down"

    ECU was one of the few universities I was considering applying for, and when I was awarded an Engineering Excellence Scholarship, it was an offer I couldn't turn down. As for the engineering course, I have always been good at maths and problem-solving and the engineering field seemed perfect for me.

    I've spent my first year at the Bunbury Campus. This has been an enjoyable experience and the smaller classes meant it was really personalised. I had access to an abundance of help and support, as well as making friendships with other students and my lecturers. This first year has given me a broad overview of the engineering field and helped me decide to specialise in mechanical engineering. I've also developed a lot of teamwork skills that I believe will help me in both my studies and just life in general.

    Alexander Gibbs

    ECU Secondary Visual Arts Education graduate

    "Every unit from my degree has been helpful and I have been able to put the skills I have learnt into practice in the classroom."

    I have a love for art that I wanted to be able to share with others, so I decided to study Secondary Education at ECU with a major in Visual Arts. During the course I had the opportunity to learn across many art areas including ceramics, painting, printmaking and drawing.

    I believe ECU is the best university for Teacher Education as they have a variety of disciplines available and provide so much real life experience in classrooms. I was a bit nervous about going out on practicum placement at first, but I definitely learnt so much out in a real classroom – this experience helped confirm that teaching was the career I want to pursue.
