For tomorrow’s discoverers. The Faculty of Science and Engineering is internationally recognised for its coursework and research in science, engineering and technology. As a student or researcher, you’ll benefit from innovative facilities, experienced staff and an international network of high-profile partners including Chevron, Woodside, Cisco and the University of Aberdeen. As a result, our graduates are well equipped to succeed in the workplace today and into the future.

PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION Our courses are recognised by leading professional bodies, both within Australia and internationally, making graduates highly employable regardless of where they choose to work. For example, many of our engineering degrees are formally recognised by Engineers Australia as a step toward chartered engineer status, a worldwide benchmark in engineering. We’ve been changing the game since 1903, when the Western Australian School of Mines was established. Since then, we’ve introduced the Engineering Foundation Year for undergraduates, created innovative learning spaces like the Landgate Spatial Sciences Studio and the Green Electric Energy Park, and built the A$32.5 million Curtin Engineering Pavilion Complex and A$116 million Resources and Chemistry Precinct.

COLLABORATIVE AND INNOVATIVE RESEARCH Skilled staff and students conduct high-profile research that underpins Curtin’s key areas of research focus. The faculty’s research excellence continues to support Western Australia in becoming a major centre for education and research in engineering, science, mining, petroleum and agriculture. The faculty has a number of cooperative research centres, centres of excellence and various other university research institutes. These include the Fuels and Energy Technology Institute (FETI), which conducts both basic and applied research in energy and fuel conversions to develop advanced technologies that the commercial sector can utilise. FETI collaborates internationally with researchers in China, Korea, Japan, Denmark and the United States. As part of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, we’re helping prepare the world for the arrival of the $2.5 billion Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope, which will be the largest and most powerful groundbased ar

MAXIMUM INDUSTRY EXPOSURE Whether you choose a science or engineering degree, you will benefit from a number of work experience opportunities, and have the chance to engage with students studying these complementary disciplines. Curtin’s Science students engage in numerous field trips, laboratory work and handson assignments across all the science majors. Curtin’s Resources and Chemistry Precinct also accommodates organisations like ChemCentre, a flagship chemical facility. You’ll study within a vibrant research community and interact with a range of industries, potential employers and career paths in industry research. If you study mining or metallurgical engineering, you’ll study part or all of your degree at our Kalgoorlie Campus, placing you at the centre of one of the country’s richest gold and nickel regions. The Curtin Engineering Pavilion Complex serves as an area of interaction and collaboration between industry, students and academia. Consisting of the student-centred Curtin Engineering Pavilion and

INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED In 2015, Curtin was ranked in the top 100 universities in the world for chemical engineering and earth and marine sciences. 2015 QS World University Rankings by Subject
