Who we are
Curtin University of Technology is Western Australia’s largest university with over 36,000 students, 14,000 of these are international students studying on shore in Australia or offshore through partner institutions, and over 1,600 research students. We take our name from the former Prime Minister of Australia from 1941-1945, John Curtin.

What we are
Curtin University of Technology is an internationally focused, high impact research institution. A culturally diverse university, we foster tolerance and encourage the development of the individual. Our learning programs centre around the provision of knowledge and skills to meet industry and workplace standards. A combination of first-rate resources, staff and technology makes Curtin a forerunner in tertiary education both within Australia and internationally.
