Curtin success in QS ranking

I am delighted to advise staff that the University has again achieved outstanding results in the QS World University Rankings by Subject.

Our results include a ranking of 19th in the world for Mineral and Mining Engineering and 40th in the world for Earth and Marine Sciences.

Overall Curtin was ranked in 18 subjects and as a top 100 university in seven:

  • Mineral and Mining Engineering
  • Earth and Marine Sciences
  • Architecture/ Built Environment
  • Nursing
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Art and Design
  • Education.

We improved on our 2015 ranking in six subjects: Accounting and Finance, Business and Management Studies, Chemistry, Civil and Structural Engineering, Earth and Marine Sciences, and Geography and Area Studies.

The rankings are compiled based on academic reputation, employer reputation and citations indicators.  The results are a testament to the University’s strong connections with industry, high quality research and wide range of innovative courses – and the efforts and commitment of our outstanding staff.

Congratulations to all those who helped the University achieve this wonderful success.

Terrorist attacks

The world has once again been shocked and saddened by large scale terrorist attacks, most recently in Turkey and Belgium.

On behalf of the Curtin community, I offer our deepest sympathies to those affected by these terrible events.  Our hearts and thoughts go out to victims and their loved ones.

We have been in contact with staff and students in the areas attacked to offer support.  To the best of our knowledge, no one associated with the University has been caught up in these events.

Please remember that any member of the Curtin community who has been affected by terrorism, or who needs support of any kind, is encouraged to contact the Student Wellbeing Hotline on 1800 244 043 or the Curtin Counselling Service on 9266 7850.  The University will provide any assistance possible to help those affected.

As a sign of support for all those affected by acts of terror, last night Curtin Stadium was lit with the colours of the Belgian flag, the country most recently attacked.
