Innovative ideas

If you join us as a student or staff member, you can expect to build life skills, join an international community and become part of a forward-thinking culture committed to sharing innovative ideas.

Our research has become increasingly prominent on the international stage, which has resulted in us being ranked in the top 1% percent of universities worldwide in the highly regarded Academic Ranking of World Universities 2017.

Our teaching is delivered to a high standard across all our locations. Our campuses in the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and Singapore are viewed as equally important, and we try to emphasis connections and collaborations as much as possible in our daily practices.

Global university

While our education has been focused in the Asia-Pacific Region, we are intending to expand our presence through strategic international partnerships, alliances and integrated campuses in the Middle East, the Indian Ocean Region and Africa, and build deeper relationships through our existing collaborations in Europe.

At the same time, we will continue to positively impact local communities. On our Bentley Campus, the Greater Curtin development will play a critical role in helping us to further intensify our linkages with industry, business and the broader community. Meanwhile, Curtin University’s newest campus at Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) will be a creative hub and will allow students to enrol in undergraduate and postgraduate programs in business, science, information technology, and humanities. Students at Curtin Dubai have the opportunity to receive an Australian Degree directly from Curtin University.

Our vision

Our vision is to become a recognised global leader in research, education and engagement. To achieve this, our strategic plan for 2017-2020 will ensure that we:

  • strengthen our capacity to be future looking
  • maintain a focus on excellence in everything we do
  • strive to be both industry-facing and industry-embedded
  • deepen our well-established culture of innovation
  • build life-long connections with an engaged alumni
  • above all, be led by our values as we support our staff, promote Indigenous reconciliation and contribute to a fairer and just society for all.
