Since our inception, we have taken an innovative approach to teaching and research.

Our campuses are vibrant, welcoming spaces that value diversity and difference, emphasise industry connections and practical learning, have a strong commitment to social justice and foster a forward-thinking culture for our students, staff and the wider community.

In line with developments in Perth, we are beginning to transform Curtin Perth into a cultural hub where members of the community can live, study, work and socialise together as part of the Greater Curtin project.

Our focus is always on delivering excellence and strengthening our position as a leading global university, according to our vision, mission and values.
