Facilities

The School of Business and Law has purpose built rooms to facilitate learning in a wide variety of disciplines.

The Postgraduate Lounge is available 24 hours a day to the School’s Postgraduate and PhD students. The space has a purpose built kitchen and study facilities as well as sleep pods, meeting spaces and televisions for presentations.

As well as the Postgraduate Lounge which can house over 30 students at any given time, the School's PhD students also have access to an adjoining PhD Suite with 12 computer spaces, and a kitchen and meeting space.

The Centre for Business Development is an $800,000 space at ECU’s Joondalup Campus. It’s a collaborative learning teaching room with interactive technology and contemporary furnishings in order to create an enhanced, more collaborative and interactive teaching and learning facility.

The room houses Virtual Reality (VR) software where students learn fundamental communication and business skills through on-demand virtual technology.

This space is being used across a range of units in the School and is currently booked to capacity during semester. Students are encouraged to work in this space in a collaborative manner, utilising the pod-set up and presentation facilities in each pod.

The School of Business and Law established the SBL Research Hub in 2016 to accommodate the engagement and the interdisciplinary activities of the School’s research.

The Research Hub provides the School with a space devoted to nurturing interdisciplinary research at scale. It homes three research centres:

  • Centre for Innovative Practice (CIP),
  • Centre for Work and Organisational Performance (CWOP),
  • Markets and Services Research Centre (MASRC), and
  • The research office quarter.

It provides access to researchers and HDR students in all disciplines with the opportunity to escape from the silos and collaborate.

The SMART Lab (Securities & Markets Analytics, Research and Teaching Lab) gives ECU students access to real-time, global financial markets data and features dual screen terminals with Bloomberg Professional software, globally recognised and widely used by industry practitioners. As part of a global business curriculum, the Bloomberg Terminals will give students the skills necessary to succeed as a world-ready graduate in a fast-paced, globalised economy.

The SMART Lab is a multipurpose collaborative space that can also be utilised for research and collaboration with industry partners, providing researchers with access to a wider range of secondary financial data. State of the art visualisation and video conferencing facilities also enable researchers to collaborate with other students and academics around the globe.

The Digital Hub is a state-of-the-art teaching, learning and research space at Edith Cowan University’s Joondalup Campus. This cutting edge facility includes virtual reality equipment, and a range of software applications widely used in local and international environments. This allows students to learn in a simulated learning environment and enables them to work on real life business challenges.

This space facilitates the application of important theoretical skills to practical industry relevant experience. The Digital Hub is the latest example of the School of Business and Law’s commitment to maintaining industry relevance, and developing work-ready graduates seeking employment in an ever changing, globalised business workforce.

Featuring state-of-the-art facilities, the Moot Court is a unique hybrid teaching space at ECU, giving students the opportunity to develop professional skills in a simulated legal environment. With seating for a jury, and the capability to include testimony and cross examination of witnesses, the moot court provides a real-world, authentic learning environment for both on campus and online law students, allowing them to participate in mock trials, as well as in witness examination and cross examination simulations.

The Moot Court is designed to replicate legal practise, and contains key technical features including remote witness and remote judge video conferencing capabilities, with camera tracking facilities switching to correspond with the active participant by microphone triggering. With electronic communication becoming commonplace in Australian courts, ECU has built a facility with state of the art technology that gives both online and on-campus students the opportunity to put theory into practice in a court room environment, before entering the legal profession.
