Curtin About us

What we do

A commitment to innovation and excellence in teaching and research.

We offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business, humanities, health sciences, resources, engineering and related sciences. We're also recognised for high impact research across four defined and distinct areas of focus:

  • Minerals and energy
  • ICT and emerging technologies
  • Health
  • Sustainable development

We have close links with corporate business, industry, government and the community and our courses have a strong practical focus, with most involving vocational or work experience components. As a result, Curtin graduates are job-ready and prepared, with skills that enable them to make a genuine and positive influence in a continuously changing world.

In the 1960s, James Street, close to the city centre, was almost chosen as the location for Curtin's main campus. Eventually Bentley was settled on for its space.
