Faculty of Science & Engineering
Western Australia, with its abundance of natural resources, represents one of the world’s most important producers and Curtin is committed to becoming a leader in both education and research in the field of science and engineering.
The Faculty of Science and Engineering aspires to be nationally and internationally recognised as a leader in engineering, science and computing education and research. It is the most geographically diverse of all faculties at Curtin, with campuses located at Bentley in Perth, as well as throughout Western Australia’s agricultural and mining regions. The areas of education and research the faculty embraces represent key areas of the state’s economy, in particular the energy and resources sector.
The faculty is highly regarded for its teaching and research in a full range of science and engineering disciplines. It is a partner in five Federal Government funded cooperative research centres and eight Western Australian State Government Centres of Excellence. It is also a partner in a National Key Centre and a Special Research Centre.
