        Excellence Scholarship recipient

        “I was unaware of how versatile studying
        engineering really is.”
        After achieving my ATAR results I applied to
        ECU via TISC under the Engineering Excellence
        Scholarship. In high school I was still very unsure
        what I wanted to do, let alone even study
        at university. The scholarship gave me a firm
        direction on where to continue my future.

                       Tamzin Walker
                       ECU Mechatronics Engineering/Computer Science graduate
                       Control Systems Engineer, BHP

                       “Getting a job at the forefront of the mining industry has been one of my greatest achievements.”
                       In high school, creating something and having it implemented in the real world interested me.
                       So I chose to study Engineering at ECU, especially for the heavy practical aspect of the degree.
                       After graduating, I joined the BHP graduate program and this has helped me find my current role
                       as a Control Systems Engineer – working with autonomous robots! ECU gave me the skills to learn
                       about myself and my capabilities when challenged with new concepts and situations.

                       Matthew Foster
                       ECU Mechanical Engineering graduate
                       Platform Systems Engineer, Department of Defence

                       “ECU is a fantastic uni and has a lot to offer – it was one of my best decisions.”
                       During my studies, ECU had plenty of industry engagement through careers fairs, workshops and
                       presentations. So when it came time to apply for graduate positions I knew I was ready as I had
                       networked with professionals from those companies and understood what they were seeking.
                       When I was going through job interviews I was able to link back to that and talk about a tangible
                       product and the real engineering I had done. One thing my degree did really well was balance the
                       technical elements of engineering with the project management elements. In the workplace, you
                       need both and it’s an essential part of what I do day to day.

                       Jordan Butler
                       ECU Civil Engineering graduate
                       Structural/Maritime Engineer, Wallbridge Gilbert Aztec (WGA)

                       “If you want a well‑rounded and practical experience, definitely study Engineering at ECU.”
                       My advice to students would be to study to get a job, not to get a degree. Maximise your
                       opportunities to get experience that will get you a career. So for me, that was participating in
                       engineering societies, going overseas, joining the Vice‑Chancellor’s forum and so forth. All of
                       these gave me interpersonal skills and international experience. I was also named the WA Young
                       Professional Engineer of the Year 2018 at the Engineers Australia WA Engineering Excellence
                       Awards. If you want a well‑rounded and practical experience, definitely study Engineering at ECU.

Instrumentation control and automation engineering is
the integration of electrical, electronic and computing
engineering with control engineering. This integrated
discipline includes the development of intelligent systems
to automate monitoring, processing, and production in
different engineering industries. The course is designed to
provide graduates with a strong background to enter into
a range of career pathways related to automation and
control application in the mining and mineral processing,
oil and gas, and agriculture industries that are strongly
represented in the economy of Western Australia.
Graduates of the course will be conversant in electrical
and electronic engineering; have specialist skills in design,
development and management of advanced control and
automation systems; and have the ability to participate in,
and lead, complex multidisciplinary projects.
The program focuses on the development of knowledge
and skills relevant to professional engineering practice
along with a sound theoretical base, and includes strong        Work Experience
