ECU’s School of Science offers a range of courses in the areas of Science and Computing & Security. When it comes to studying science and the environment, ECU’s research and teaching are world-class. You’ll find a range of practical degrees that can lead to distinctly different careers in fields such as marine and freshwater biology, conservation and wildlife biology, environmental management, physics, chemistry, mathematics, data science, and more.

ECU is also recognised as a leader in cyber security research. Our Computing and Security courses offer a range of majors to choose from. Our cyber security research and education team is one of the best in Australia and one of the top 10 globally. In 2017 ECU was recognised by the Australian Federal Government as one of just two Academic Centres of Cyber Security Excellence in Australia, and the only one in WA. ECU will also play a key role in the Federal Government funded $50 million Cyber Security Cooperation Research Centre, which will have its Head Office at the ECU Joondalup Campus.
