Curtin University

Curtin University is a multi-campus university founded as the Western Australian Institute of Technology (WAIT) in 1967. Curtin aspires to be a leading university in education and research for the benefit of its students and the wider community, both locally and globally.

Curtin University offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business, humanities, health sciences, resources, engineering and related sciences. Curtin also hosts the Australian Sustainable Development Institute (ASDI), ASDI's key focus is sustainable development in relation to energy, water and interactions with people and communities and is an exciting initiative that positions Curtin University of Technology as a leader in sustainable development research and education.


Curtin University is Western Australia's largest and most multi-cultural university. Curtin has a strong commitment to international engagement with Australia's third largest international student population. We maintain campuses in Malaysia and Singapore while also conducting face-to-face teaching in a number of countries. This cultural diversity adds a rich and valuable dimension to our campus atmosphere and also prepares our graduates to live and work in an increasingly global environment.

Curtin has a long standing commitment to indigenous education and culture and have the highest enrolment of Indigenous Australians of any university in the country. Our Centre for Aboriginal Studies is recognised as a national leader in its field and we were the first university in Australia to sign a Statement of Reconciliation.

Curtin is also fundamentally committed to providing regional education within Western Australia through campuses and education centres spread across the state including Esperance, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Margaret River, Northam, Port Hedland and Albany. We also have a campus in Sydney.

Curtin is widely recognised for the practical and applied nature of our courses, which equip graduates with essential skills through exposure to industry and business, and our research, which focuses on solving real world problems. This combination enables our graduates to be effective in the workplace immediately upon graduation.

As part of this approach, Curtin has always fostered successful partnerships with industry, business and government to enhance the quality of our scholarship, teaching and research. We will continue to develop existing partnerships and to establish new ones in areas relevant to our research and teaching.
