Structural degradation and corrosion cost the Australian economy more than $30 billion each year, yet much of the damage to materials can be avoided through efficient monitoring and prevention technologies.

For more than 30 years, Curtin has been amassing comprehensive expertise in structural monitoring and protection, geotechnical engineering, concrete technology and construction management, with research relevant to the resources, automotive, biomedical, chemical processing, defence and maritime industries.

We continue to build on these long-standing research strengths – including in asset monitoring and corrosion control – and to attract expertise for new areas of innovation, such as sustainable engineering for low-energy design projects in the built environment.
