Why choose engineering at Curtin?
Gain a strong foundation
You’ll begin your education experience by studying skills and concepts common to all areas of engineering in our Engineering Foundation Year. This foundation gives you a broad knowledge and helps you progress smoothly into your chosen major in your second year. You won’t just learn through theory –you’ll also work on simulated projects and in real computing, electrical, and mechanics laboratories, preparing you for today’s interdisciplinary workforce when you graduate.
Graduate as an Accredited Engineer
When you graduate, you’ll immediately fulfil the stage one competencies required by Engineers Australia for a professional engineer and will be able to work internationally in more than 20 countries. The accreditation is only awarded to universities that have met rigorous benchmarks of teaching quality.
Travel to unforgettable destinations
Want to travel to your dream overseas destination and gain a competitive edge in your industry? When borders open, you could study a semester abroad at one of our campuses in Dubai or Malaysia. You could also undertake an exchange program at one of our partner universities in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, or South America, or attend an international conference.
Make industry connections
You’ll have opportunities to network with top employers in your chosen industry, through advisory panel discussions and guest lectures. In your final year, you could even work on an industry research project with one of our partners.

Verity Williams, Bachelor of Engineering (Civil and Construction Engineering) (Honours)
I have a keen interest in sourcing local and sustainable building products. In my final year, I attended the World Conference on Timber Engineering in Auckland, New Zealand, which was a fascinating insight into how different countries adapt to local constraints and challenges.
