Edith Cowan University Security Research Institute
With a reputation as one of the leading digital security and forensic groups in world, the Security Research Institute has emerged as one of ECU’s most vital research groups. The group offers a range of investigating study areas that deliver immediate and high impact outcomes in the areas of computer and digital forensics, network and wireless security, information warfare, physical security, risk management and aviation security.
ECU is an Australian Computer Society (ACS) Centre of Expertise in Security, has been recognised by the Australian Federal Government as an Academic Centre of Cyber Security Excellence (ACCSE), and operates as the headquarters of the federally funded Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre (CyberSec CRC).
Securities and Markets Analytics, Research and Teaching (SMART) Lab
The SMART lab is a world-class facility built in 2017 that provides Finance and Accounting students at the School of Business and Law first hand exposure to using an industry-standard tool.
At the heart of the SMART lab is access to the Bloomberg Professional Software via Bloomberg Terminals. Students have access to real-time prices in global financial and commodity markets, news and analysis.
The Lab is set up to emulate a trading room. Incorporating the Bloomberg resources into the Finance and Accounting curricula provides our students with hands-on experience to help bridge the gap between theory and practice.
The ability to use Bloomberg databases is regarded as an advantage when students are seeking employment. This first-hand experience allows our students to be work-ready, and ethical and socially responsible decision makers for the financial sector. Our students participate in national and international competitions each year and using Bloomberg as an information source.
Exercise and Medical Health Sciences
Established in 2003, the Exercise Medicine Research Institute houses an innovative, multidisciplinary and productive research team in exercise science dedicated to investigating the extent to which exercise can be employed in chronic disease management, principally cancer, to materially improve patient outcomes. The team’s unique convergence of clinical patient care, exercise medicine, and innovation in health interventions has underpinned their achievements in cancer research. Most notably, their multifaceted research program has been the direct result of seminal work in prostate cancer enabling direct translation of their research findings into practical outcomes for patient benefit and the design and implementation of clinical and community based cancer survivorship programs.
The Vario Heath Clinic is part of the Exercise Medicine Research Institute and provides an ideal setting to implement and trial clinical research findings into practice – the translation of research knowledge. This research informs clinical practice as well as teaching and learning. By measuring outcomes for the clients and patients of the Clinic, further knowledge is gained and best practice further refined. The Clinic offers leading edge, evidenced-based programs in the areas of exercise physiology, dietetics and physiotherapy.
