"I wanted to study a course covering all things related to computers - both the hardware and software."
"In Perth only ECU offered my course with the targeted (and interesting) range of units that I wanted. During my course, I have gained not just technical knowledge, but general problem solving and critical thinking as well. The willingness of lecturers to assist with informal meetings is very beneficial - for the most part you can just knock on their doors to discuss something. Most are great mentors and eager to share their knowledge and experiences."
