Curtin University was established in Perth in 1986 and named after former Prime Minister John Curtin, who once said the great university should “look ever forward”.
Curtin is Western Australia’s most preferred university for undergraduates. Curtin students receive a globally relevant education that encourages them to develop an intercultural awareness, question traditional ideas and take advantage of a variety of exchange opportunities.
Curtin maintains strong partnerships with some of the world’s most reputable institutions including an alliance with the historic University of Aberdeen in Scotland to leverage the strengths and industry networks of both universities, particularly in energy research.
Curtin’s rapid rise up the international rankings can largely be attributed to its research performance across a range of endeavours. It leads a number of major international research projects and is involved with more than 70 research centres and collaborations, including the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy, the Centre for Crop and Disease Management and Innovation Central Perth.
Curtin students can access a range of industry placements and technology-rich learning environments that recreate real workplaces – such as a simulated hospital ward, stock market trading room and digital marketing agency – to gain a competitive edge in the job market.
