Research centres


Autism Academy for Software Quality Assurance

The Autism Academy for Software Quality Assurance (AASQA) is an Australian social innovation initiative with the vision of harnessing the special talents of people with Autism for the collective benefit of those with Autism, industry and the wider community.

Centre for Smart Grid and Sustainable Power Systems

The Centre for Smart Grid and Sustainable Power Systems focuses on fundamental and applied research to develop advanced knowledge in electrical power engineering.

Centre for Infrastructural Monitoring and Protection (CIMP)

CIMP is built to focus, enhance and enrich the research strengths of Civil and Structural Engineering in Curtin University.

Curtin Corrosion Engineering Industry Centre (CCEIC)

Curtin Corrosion Engineering Industry Centre (CCEIC) has been conducting high quality research and providing expert consultancy services to oil and gas industry for more than two decades

Fuels and Energy Technology Institute (FETI)

FETI is focused on developing novel technologies for both fossil fuels and renewable energy sources in light of the urgent global priority to secure low-cost energy supply and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Sino-Australian Joint Research Centre for Ocean Engineering

The Sino-Australian Joint Research Centre encompasses marine, subsea and ocean engineering and technologies.


Centre for Crop and Disease Management (CCDM)

Conducts high-impact research that makes a real difference to the Australian grains industry.

Centre for Marine Science and Technology (CMST)

CMST’s expertise fits into three major categories: Marine Acoustics, Hydrodynamics and Underwater Technology.

Curtin Institute for Computation (CIC)

CIC was founded to meet this increasing demand for computational modelling, data analytics and visualisation.

Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA)

CIRA concentrates its research effort into a range of projects in the area of radio astronomy, including aspects of next generation telescopes.

Curtin Water Quality Research Centre (CWQRC)

CWQRC’s research includes identifying and solving WA’s potable water issues, adapting solutions from other regions and providing research training that supports the industry.

John De Laeter Centre for Isotope Research (JDLC)

JDLC integrative research in the minerals and petroleum sectors is foremost among the Centre’s strategic goals.

Nanochemistry Research Institute (NRI)

NRI’s research includes energy and resources, materials and manufacturing, electronics, agriculture, environmental management, health and medical industries.

WA School of Mines (WASM)

Australia-China Joint Research Centre for Tectonics and Earth Resources

This centre facilitates collaborative research and research training in geotectonics and mineral and hydrocarbon resources.

Supercontinent Cycles and Global Geodynamics

This centre aims to establish/improve global databases of geotectonics, palaeomagnetism, mineral deposits, and the occurrences of past mantle plume events, and examine how the supercontinent cycles interacted with the deep mantle to produce episodic and unevenly distributed Earth resources.

Institute for Geosciences Research (TIGeR)

TIGeR studies Earth’s dynamic evolution as recorded in the geotectonic, geochronologic, geodetic and geochemical records. The multi-scale, multi-disciplinary approach taken by the centre, integrates the latest technology with collection of basic field and laboratory data from many parts of the world and allows global synthesis of geological, geodetic and geochemical information.

SSERVI Australia

Australia is home to world renowned geologists, planetary scientists, geochronologists, geophysicists, mechatronics engineers and physicists who actively work together to discover our solar system and share its wonders with everyone
