WHO WAS EDITH COWAN?
Born in 1861 in Glengarry, near Geraldton, Edith Dircksey
Cowan believed education was the key to growth, change and
improvement. Edith’s contribution to the development of
Western Australian education was significant. She strove to
achieve social justice and campaigned for the rights of women,
children and families, for the poor, the poorly educated and
the elderly. So it’s fitting that the oldest education institution
and newest State university, Edith Cowan University, bears her
name. 2011 marks the 150th anniversary of Edith’s birth and
the 90th anniversary of her election to parliament.

Naval Architects are professional engineers that design and
oversee the construction and repair of marine craft and various
offshore structures. This includes naval craft, passenger and
cargo ships, submarines, high‑speed ferries and catamarans,
tugs, yachts and offshore drilling platforms. Naval architects
understand the properties of the environments in which
marine craft operate and determine ways to optimise their
operations to meet operational, safety and performance goals.
Australia leads the world in the design and construction of
high‑speed aluminium craft, and naval architects are in great
demand in this sector. Naval architects are also in demand
in companies that design and build leisure craft, and sailing
and power yachts. Many of the vessels of the Royal Australian
Navy deployed in the defence of the nation have been
built in Australian yards with considerable Australian design
input; these include patrol boats, mine hunters, frigates
and submarines.
Naval architects also have career opportunities in other sectors
of the marine industry including oil and gas, marine surveying,
and consulting.
This course is offered in collaboration with the Australian
Maritime College at the University of Tasmania in Launceston,
Tasmania. The first two years of the course are delivered at
ECU’s Joondalup Campus. The final two years are delivered at
the Australian Maritime College in Launceston and students will
need to relocate to Launceston for this portion of the course.

                     The course provides a pathway for Indigenous Australian
                     students to enter into most undergraduate courses at
                     ECU. Students develop the academic skills and the cultural
                     understandings of University necessary to succeed in
                     higher education.
                     Entry into some undergraduate programs may require
                     additional extension studies and processes of negotiation.
                     High achieving students have the opportunity to fast‑track
                     their studies and complete this course in six months, with the
                     approval of the School.
                     Admission Requirements: The course is open to Aboriginal and
                     Torres Strait Islander people who will be at least 18 years during
                     their first year of study.
                     Entry to the IUOC can be through the Indigenous Student
                     Intake Test (ISIT), graduating with a Year 12 Western Australian
                     Certificate of Education (or equivalent), or completing a
                     Certificate Level 3 TAFE qualification.
                     On occasion the ISIT demonstrates that a prospective student
                     may have the capacity to enter directly into undergraduate
                     programs.

HONOUrS
If you are passionate about a particular subject, an
Honours program will enable you to explore this area
in greater depth. You will be actively contributing to
the global body of knowledge in that field.
An Honours degree is a fourth year of study at
undergraduate level, which includes some coursework units
and a research thesis or project. In certain four‑year degrees
such as Engineering, dependent on the student’s total
weighted course average and the final year project mark,
students may be automatically awarded an Honours degree.
An ECU Honours course may enhance your employment
opportunities. Honours graduates are highly valued by
prospective employers for their excellent writing, research
and communication skills allowing them to put their mark
on complex projects.
Entrance to the Honours course is normally through
invitation by the School to students with a course average
of 70% or higher. Students who have a course average
close to 70% and who have demonstrated an aptitude
for research and independent study may apply to be
considered for Honours. External prospective students are
also welcome to apply. To discuss possible topics, available
projects and potential supervisors, talk to the Honours
Coordinators of the discipline you are interested in.




The best aspect of studying at ECU is the close
relationship that can be formed with lecturers.
You know you’re not just a number.
