With a breadth of research options and excellent facilities, you can participate in high-impact collaborative research that aims to make tomorrow better.

Our research falls into four broad areas of focus:

Minerals and energy

Our minerals and energy research programs are focused on maximising existing resources today and developing innovative energy solutions to meet the needs of tomorrow.

ICT and emerging technologies

Our information communication technology (ICT) and emerging technologies research programs are broadly concerned with the use of technology to communicate and use information.


We are the largest and most comprehensive provider of health sciences research in Western Australia, bringing together scientists and researchers to uncover better methods of preventing, diagnosing and treating a range of chronic conditions and lifestyle diseases.


Our world-recognised expertise in marine science and technology and related disciplines, backed by a solution-driven approach, sees Curtin ideally positioned to deliver high-impact research for Australia’s maritime defence security capabilities.
