The School of Computer and Security Science offers a variety of industry relevant courses in the areas of computing, information science and security science. Our courses are informed by an active research program, with the school being home to the secau Security Research Centre and three research groups.
ECU’s secau Security and Research Centre is recognised as an Australian Computer Society (ACS) Centre of Expertise (COE), allowing students in the broad security discipline to participate in cross-disciplinary research projects within various ECU study areas, including Engineering, Information and Computer Science, Psychology, and Law and Justice. This collaboration increases the likelihood of discovering and tackling the key security questions that lie ahead, and encourages students to take a broader, more open-minded perspective to security issues.
The computer and security science labs have the latest equipment and facilities for the conduct of traditional computer science and IT degrees. Several specialist labs can also be found for Networking, Games Programming and Simulation, Computer Security and Digital Forensics.
