Advance your science and engineering career with Curtin University
Curtin is a diverse, forward-thinking university that emphasises practical and applied learning to help you excel in your career and achieve new job opportunities.
Here’s what you can expect when you study with us:
The best way to learn is by doing. In your course, you’ll have opportunities to undertake placements in industry or work on projects that have real-world application.
You could visit industrial sites or laboratories, go on field trips to regional areas or the coast, or complete research projects in collaboration with industry. Some of our industry partners include BHP, Chevron, Cisco and NASA.
You can increase your career prospects through networking events, training sessions, professional development and industry guest lectures. Through these experiences, you’ll learn the latest issues in your sector and expand your networks.
Don’t worry – if you’re studying online, you’ll have these same opportunities as soon as you arrive in Perth.
No matter your course, you’ll learn the technical crafts of your discipline and also refine the career skills valued by all employers, including communication, creative problem-solving, digital knowledges and teamwork.
These skills are essential to future workplaces that increasingly emphasise automation, collaboration and agile thinking.
Two of our engineering courses will place you in the heart of Western Australia’s largest mine site – the Kalgoorlie Super Pit. Here, you can apply your learning to the mine’s day-to-day operations, and build skills in solving operational and technical challenges.
For our online students, we’ll organise internships that you can undertake once you arrive in Perth.
