Partnerships with Industry

Partnerships with Industry

ECU has developed strong partnerships with industry groups since we were established in 1991. We collaborate with all types of businesses, including new start-ups, small to medium enterprises, not-for-profits, community organisations, government and large corporates in the resources sector.

Arts & Humanities

We connect our teaching and research programs to our local and global communities through a range of active industry projects, exhibitions, and creative collaborations. This unique interaction has enabled us to establish professional affiliations with a number of partners within the growing creative industries. This gives students the opportunity to engage with industry across a range of disciplines and professions.

Business & Law

The School of Business and Law develops industry-ready graduates who not only have strong discipline knowledge, but also have the employability skills and industry insights necessary to gain a competitive advantage in the global job market.

Computing & Security

The Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program is designed to allow high performance students to spend time embedded in an industry setting prior to graduation.

Education

Strong partnerships with schools and early childhood centre’s support an extensive program of teaching, research and community engagement.

Children’s University Edith Cowan (CU ECU) launched in December 2017 with our champion school partner, Wanneroo Primary School. Our network is continually growing, with new partner schools and validated learning destinations welcome to join the program.

Engineering

The School of Engineering participates in community initiatives throughout Western Australia. We engage with a wide range of groups, including:

  • high schools;
  • industry;
  • government; and
  • the wider community.

Gender Equality

ECU has been ranked sixth in the world for Gender Equality and is in the top 50 overall in the new Times Higher Education (THE) University Impact Rankings.

Health

We specialise in multidisciplinary collaborations, bringing together individuals, groups and organisations from a range of backgrounds to build each partners capacity, maximise our shared knowledge, and support each other to achieve common goals which benefit the community.

Our state-of-the-art, integrated primary healthcare facility located in the central Wanneroo business district houses a wide range of health service providers offering an integrated 'one-stop shop' for patients, their families and carers, as well as health promotion services for the general public.
