School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering
The school delivers undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and high-quality research in civil and mechanical engineering.
The school has extensive laboratory facilities including pavement/geotechnology research facilities, water laboratory enhancements, a heavy-testing-rig with 500t capacity, bio-activated laboratories and earthquake engineering (stress-tubes and canon impact, and blast impact engineering).
School of Earth and Planetary Sciences
The School of Earth and Planetary Sciences combines the existing and emergent strengths in geoscience and spatial science.
This includes research through the Remote Sensing and Satellite Research Group and Curtin’s close work with the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy.
School of Electrical Engineering, Computing and Mathematical Sciences
Research is an important component of the school’s activities and has resulted in at least 25 PhD students annually over the last five years.
Facilities include a mass spectrometer, an advanced ultra-clean environment laboratory, a prototype laboratory, and electron microscopy and x-ray analysis laboratories.
School of Molecular and Life Sciences
The school is a combination of studies in agriculture, chemistry. medical radiation sciences, environmental sciences and food science. Research is closely aligned with teaching and industry. Courses are supported by teaching linked to research and the school is dedicated to creating graduates with industry experience.
WA School of Mines: Minerals, Energy and Chemical Engineering
Based in both Kalgoorlie and Bentley, the school provides some of the world’s finest mining and minerals education and facilities.
In the 2017 QS World University Rankings by subject, Curtin ranked second for Mineral and Mining Education.
