About us

When you join the Faculty of Science & Engineering you’ll benefit from global industry partnerships and opportunities, and a professional and interactive environment.

Science and engineering students

We combine theory with practical study and offer facilities and innovative teaching methods to prepare you for your chosen career.

In some courses you’ll apply your knowledge and skills in a real professional setting; in others you’ll have access to some of Australia’s largest gold and nickel producers at Curtin University’s Western Australian School of Mines.

Classes are held in the purpose-built Curtin Resources and Chemistry Precinct and the Curtin Engineering Pavilion complex. These are sophisticated, stimulating and creative learning environments that offer problem-based learning, group collaboration and the opportunity to share ideas with industry.

The faculty is also involved in some exciting research projects, like the Murchison Widefield Array component of the Square Kilometre Array – an enormous telescope that will be able to detect faint emissions from galaxies that current technology cannot detect.

As Western Australia’s largest and most culturally diverse university, and with Australia’s third largest international student population, Curtin University is a leader in science and engineering research and collaboration.

Our Research

Research in the Faculty of Science & Engineering is aimed at the creation of new knowledge as well as the provision of solutions for real world problems in industry and society.
