The School of Science is housed in modern, state-of-the-art facilities located on ECU’s Joondalup and Bunbury Campuses.

At ECU's School of Science, students have access to labs equipped with the latest technology, from state-of-the-art mass spectrometry analytical equipment to the latest in computer technology.

In 2019 the School launched its brand new plant growth and mesocosm facilities and upgraded field support centre, which are being used for world class teaching and research. Our School also has high technology computer and aquarium rooms, outdoor experimental aquatic facilities, glasshouses, shade houses and operates two large boats, several dinghies and a fleet of 4WD and 2WD vehicles.

The School of Science is a leader in world-class learning environments and is committed to providing our students with access to the latest hardware and technologies. We have a number of dedicated laboratories with facilities for both teaching and research. Students within the school also have access to commercial software and systems through educational agreements with Microsoft, VMWare and Amazon AWS.

Mid 2019, sees the establishment of a multimillion dollar Security Operations Centre (SOC), providing students with a facility that allows operators to identify, classify and respond to computer security threats using real-time intelligence. Students moving into the cyber-security domain will benefit greatly from being exposed to this style of working environment.

Students will also benefit from a new $48 million science building project that is already under development and scheduled for completion in time for Semester 1, 2020. The five-level science building will include 2,500sqm of laboratory space over two floors and 3,600sqm over two floors for ECU's scientists and students to engage with the cyber security industry. At ECU, students get to learn on the latest equipment, so they can hit the ground running when they graduate.
