What ECU’s industry links could do for you

If you’re looking to study an internationally recognised qualification that’s been designed in collaboration with industry and professional bodies then look no further than Edith Cowan University.

ECU has created strong links with industry, government and research institutes in Australia and overseas to ensure their courses are relevant, practical, creative and careers-focussed.

The majority of ECU’s courses offer industry-focussed project work and work placements to give you a competitive edge in the job market.

The university’s links with industry are demonstrated in its relationship with IBM. ECU was the first Australian university to strike a partnership with the global technology giant. This two-way relationship means students have access to the latest and best information technology. The IBM partnership also means ECU gains access to world-class research from IBM in the key areas of curriculum design and academic development.

As an international student you’ll be in good company at ECU. Over 3,500 of the university’s 23,000 students are from over 80 countries around the globe.

Suhaib Abeer Shaikh, a Bachelor of Business student from India, said course structure was one of the most important reasons for his choosing to study at ECU.

“The teaching process in this university is very practical,” Suhaib said.

“Working projects gave me a chance to communicate with companies and organisations,” he said.

Michael Lim, a Bachelor of Sports Science student from Singapore, also commented positively on the course structure at ECU.
"The (Bachelor of Sports Science) course is well structured with lots of practical and applied components,” Michael said.

“Programs within ECU provide numerous opportunities to interact and learn from the lecturers who are often very willing to share and provide opinions,” he said.

Western Australian-based ECU has three campuses in Perth and one in Bunbury, which is approximately 200km south of Perth. All campuses offer a wide range of study and recreational facilities as well as a variety of services such as cafeterias and book-stores.
