OUR ENABLED ECONOMY

A hub for local economic
prosperity & investment

We’re transforming our University into a place that not only broadens horizons,
but that boosts the economy of our local area.

Under the Greater Curtin Master Plan our University will change from an isolated suburban campus into a major economic and innovation hub with a rich diversity of culture and the arts – an exciting centre of activity that is expected to contribute approximately $4.5 billion per year to WA’s economy.

THE BIG ISSUES

These are the key sustainability issues we’re acting on through
hundreds of programs and activities
to make Curtin a centre of economic vitality.
