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.

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: 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.
