Curtin University (a trade mark of Curtin University of Technology) is a public university based in Perth, Western Australia, named after the 14th Prime Minister of Australia, John Curtin. It is the largest university in Western Australia, with over 40,000 students (as of 2012). Curtin was conferred University status after the legislation was passed by the State Government of Western Australia in 1986. Since then, the University has been actively expanding its global presence and currently has campuses in Sydney, Singapore, and Sarawak. Being a leading global institution, it has forged close ties with 90 exchange universities in more than 20 countries. The University comprises 5 main faculties with over 95 specialist centres.

 

Curtin is one of only two Western Australian universities to rank in the prestigious Shanghai Jiao Tong Annual Ranking of World Universities (2011). It is also one of the two Western Australian universities to rank in the Times Higher Education’s 2011-2012 world university rankings. Curtin is ranked within the top 300 universities by QS World University Rankings 2011/12. The University is also ranked in The Academic Ranking of World Universities, 2010 (ARWU) as one of the top 500 world universities. Curtin’s Chemical Engineering program ranks amongst the best 100 in the world in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings in 2011. Curtin’s Graduate School of Business’s MBA programmes, which are accredited by the London-based Association of MBAs (AMBA), were ranked 58th out of 113 amongst renowned business schools worldwide by the Economist magazine. In addition, Curtin Creative Writing staff and alumni have won the Miles Franklin Award a total of seven times.

 

Curtin University is a member of Australian Technology Network (ATN), and is active in research in a range of academic and practical fields, including (but not limited to) Resources and Energy (e.g. petroleum gas), Information and Communication, Health, Ageing and Well-being (Public Health), Communities and Changing Environments, and Growth and Prosperity and Creative Writing. It is the only Western Australian University to produce PhD recipients of the AINSE gold medal, which is the highest recognition for PhD-level research excellence in Australia and New Zealand.

 

 

Curtin has become increasingly active in research and partnerships overseas, particularly in mainland China. It is involved in a number of business, management, and research projects, particularly in supercomputing, where the university participates in a tri-continental array with nodes in Perth, Beijing, and Edinburgh. Western Australia has become an important exporter of minerals, petroleum and natural gas. The Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao visited the Woodside-funded hydrocarbon research facility during his visit to Australia in 2005. Curtin is one of the few universities in the world to have a Department of Internet studies, and the only to have a full program, offering undergraduate and graduate degrees.
