Do It! You’ll never get that time back and it’s such a rich time for personal growth. I might not have had a lot of money when I was a student, but I had time. Exchange is such a unique experience and you make lifelong friends, plus companies value the fact that you have taken the drive to make study abroad happen for yourself. It demonstrates commitment, independence, and a broader desire for cultural awareness. It shows you are not just an individual player, and can do things on a larger scale with different learning styles and under different leadership styles.

Innovation is woven into Curtin’s engineering program through a number of projects. Students are required to have at least 10 weeks industry internship experience. Entrepreneurship is strongly encouraged in the engineering program. Curtin’s international partner, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM) has Asia’s largest Technology Park. The Park supports IITM graduates to commercialise their innovations. This project will allow students to study for a semester at IIT Madras and then undertake an internship at the start up ventures at the Technology Parks of IIT Madras.
They will learn the pathways to commercialisation of an innovation, especially in an emerging economy with a large market. Case studies of idea to business will be presented. The students will develop the framework of an entrepreneurial idea under the supervision of experts from both business and academia.
Students will undertake four-week immersion experience in Cambodia, Nepal or Thailand over the 2023 / 2024 Summer break. This global experience will be in partnership with Challenges Abroad, with a focus on promoting access to clean water, sanitation, aquaculture practices and health and hygiene.
Students will spend three weeks with Challenges Abroad Australia immersed in local culture and will apply their knowledge to begin to develop technological engineering solutions for the community challenges they observe; e.g. lack of clean water, poor waste management and / or poor infrastructure.
Dates: 24 June – 8 July 2023
The food manufacturing and safety in Sri Lanka Study Tour will be the first mobility experience of its kind for food science, nutrition, chemistry and agriculture students. Students will work with their Sri Lankan peers on food safety and food supply chain management research.
This tour is expected to take place in November 2023.
