Curtin University is an innovative, global university known for its high impact research, strong industry partnerships and commitment to preparing students for the jobs of the future.

Curtin has campuses in Perth, Kalgoorlie, Malaysia, Singapore and Dubai. Its 58,000 students come from all over the world and enjoy outstanding facilities, high-quality teaching, collaborative research and courses shaped by industry.

Curtin recently celebrated 50 years of innovation, having been established as the Western Australian Institute of Technology in 1967. Since then, it has expanded significantly in terms of student population, degree offerings, research collaborations and global footprint.

In 2017, Curtin climbed into the top percentile of tertiary institutions in the Academic Ranking of World Universities. This is the latest milestone in a remarkable rise up the world rankings and reflects the university’s growing reputation for teaching and research.

Curtin maintains strong research partnerships with some of the world’s largest companies, including Woodside, Chevron and Cisco, which result in outcomes that help solve real-world problems on a local, national and global scale. This emphasis on collaboration saw Curtin emerge as the most collaborative Australian university in the 2016 Nature Index and the third-fastest “rising star” in research in Asia Pacific for 2016.

In the 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject, Curtin was ranked second in the world for mineral and mining engineering and was ranked within the top 100 universities in six other subjects: architecture/ built environment, art and design, nursing, earth and marine sciences, education and sports-related subjects.

Curtin is undertaking one of Australia’s largest university infrastructure projects. The Greater Curtin Master Plan is a 20-year strategy to transform Curtin’s campus in Perth into a major innovation precinct which will drive collaboration and commercialisation, create opportunities for students and help position Western Australia at the forefront of the knowledge economy.

It will include new transport infrastructure and student accommodation, as well as dedicated spaces and programs to support entrepreneurship, and facilities to foster research and industry partnerships.
