About Us

About Curtin

Welcome to Curtin Singapore, one of Curtin University’s global campuses. Curtin is ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide in the highly regarded Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) 2021. We offer the same curriculum across all our locations which means students gain an education that is internationally recognised for its quality and which prepares them for their future careers. Many of the courses we offer are also accredited by the relevant national and international professional associations.

We are building strong partnerships with government, industry and the community to help inform our teaching and research. This will enable us to ensure that our courses, the co-curricular activities that support student learning outside the classroom and our research build capacity and address issues that are relevant to Singapore and the region.

We are also building our research capability through applied research at Curtin Singapore and through our partnerships with key stakeholders and across our global network of campuses. Our focus is on addressing key opportunities, challenges and emerging issues in Singapore and the ASEAN region. We are committed to excellence in all that we do and are proud of our graduates who are working hard in their chosen fields of endeavour to make tomorrow better.
