Hear what our graduates have to say

I loved studying geology at Curtin. The equipment there is top notch. I completed two lots of vacation work during my course. Working at a gold mine gave me insight into the industry and grew my professional network. I also worked in an engineering geology consultancy and decided this would be my career after I graduate.
