Our student experience
Curtin focuses on providing an immersive learning experience with industry-connected and international study opportunities for our students, in an environment that promotes diversity and inclusion. These approaches are why Curtin is seen as a progressive university, with the culture and the mindset to drive economic and social benefits that transform lives and the future.
Research and innovation
Curtin excels in several research fields and leads research centres, major industry collaborations and international endeavours such as the Murchison Widefield Array radio telescope. Named as Australia’s first Trailblazer university, we recently gained government funding to develop value-chain capabilities for hydrogen resources and in-demand metals such as lithium, in partnership with universities and companies across Australia.
We’ve also developed a pipeline of support to transform ideas into real-world benefits. Over the past 20 years, this ‘Curtinnovation’ pipeline has launched many homegrown Australian products and services. From new methods for assessing pain in patients with dementia, to digital resources that help schools and households reduce their carbon footprint, the diversity of our start-ups reflects the core role of future-focused universities.
