The course I am taking is master of engineering major in civil. The best aspect of this course is that it will give us vast knowledge in engineering products and markets there by helping us move forward in our career. However, as the course is general, it touches all the engineering subjects in brief only. We cannot specialise in a particular field. Thus, if one is looking to become an expert in one specific area then this course is not the best option.
My advice to future students is: Only advice I would like to give the new prospective student is ECU is best if you are opting to study business or any undergraduate course as there are many options to choose. But if you are a master of engineering student and looking to specialise I one particular area then you got to think wise. Nevertheless, ECU has perfect student support systems as well as teaching faculties.
I majored in Civil engineering.
Positives: It relates to real life situations
Negatives: It’s hard work
My advice to future students is: Buy the textbook it helps
Positives: Very strong emphasis on hands on and practical learning. The motor sports workshop provides a massive opportunity for students to learn some practical aspects of engineering and design during the annual building of vehicles for motor sports competition
Negatives: I don’t think I had many negative experiences with the course. Maybe the workloads in some units are a bit too much for the short semesters.
My advice to future students is: A great place to study in a very relaxed city!
Positives: Coherent course, good teachers
Negatives: So many students cheating
My advice to future students is: Be dedicated, ask for help when need it. You can do it
Positives: It involves a lot of learning and practical aspects which you can directly relate to real life experiences
Negatives: It very stressful, lots of research and practical. Just takes your day
My advice to future students is: Its best if you study while you are still in session not waiting till the exam period. It really helps
Positives: The teaching styles, organisation of classes and practical sides of units
Negatives: None so far
My advice to future students is: Make a planner before you start the unit
Positives: The Lecturers and Tutors do attend classes without fail, are very supportive and Knowledgeable of the units they are teachings. We are also provided with links to reference books that actually exist in the library, and can contact the lecturers/tutors at any time for consultations, clarifications or other general help. Overall, this sets up a good environment for one to succeed
Negatives: I can say that the cost of tuition fees is a bit high, more so if you are an international student. There is also arbitrary increase in fees by up to $500 or more for each semester . So that's the most tricky part of sustaining study.
My advice to future students is: I would advise future potential students that they should be prepared to work hard, have an open mind and have adequate funds for sustaining your stay in Australia since the bills are too much e,g, rent, food, transport etc.
I'm majoring in Civil engineering.
Positive points are that it leads to a great career opportunities and negative are that it needs to have all attention towards studies so there is no time for other things
My advice to future students is: be positive and put efforts towards the course
