Engagement and partnerships

The School of Science has extensive links with industry, government, businesses and other universities locally, nationally and internationally and is always seeking to foster new partnerships.

Computer Crime Squad of Western Australia

The School of Science collaborate with the Computer Crime Squad of Western Australia to develop the Simple Image Preview Live Environment (SImPLE) project assisting front line police arrest child related crime.


ECU students from Computing, Science, Intelligence and Mathematics run one day workshops for High school students (7-12).The workshops are designed to assist interested students understanding of, and aspirations for, careers in Computer and Security Science. Four workshops are on offer exploring, Digital Forensics, Security, Cyber Security and Software Engineering. These are held in the Makerspace.

Girls Programming Network

In conjunction with the University of Sydney, GPN@ECU-Perth is an opportunity for high school girls to learn coding and pursue an interest in Computer Science. Female alumni and industry partners also engage with our program to mentor and inspire girls towards careers in C&SS. We run this once per term for girl’s in years 7 - 12.


ECU’s School of Science hosts an ‘intelligence operation’ session for students of year 8, 9, 10,11 or 12. Intelligence is the collection and analysis of information to inform decision makers as they work to secure a country’s interests. Counter-intelligence is the protection of this sensitive information. ECU Security Intelligence lecturers and students have developed an engaging half day session for high school students. They will collect and analyse different forms of information, use intuition and creativity to develop intelligence assessments that reveal the capabilities of our suspect group.

Making IT w/Science

ECU Computer Science lecturers and students have developed a series of learning opportunities for high school (7-12) students held each week in the Makerspace. These activities allow students to engage in computational, design and systems thinking as well as systems analysis and systems building. Students will experience the computer science process that is needed to create digital solutions.

Sensei Samurai Coding

This is Coderdojo for adults! We offer introductory sessions for parents and educators who want to learn how to code. We start with Scratch and move to learning Python and finish with a half day workshop on a project. The courses run out of Mount Lawley Terms 1 and 3, Joondalup Terms 2 and 4.

Western Australian Marine Sciences Institution

The Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research are members of the Western Australian Marine Sciences Institution (WAMSI) which carries out research into climate change, biodiversity, the iconic Ningaloo Marine Park, sustainable fisheries, biotechnology and oceanography, and has overseen the development of a marine bioresources library that will store thousands of marine samples collected by researchers.
