Hear from our graduates

Kofei Osei – Master of Science (Geology)

I chose to study at Curtin because it’s highly recognised for mining and geology, and ranked second in the world in Mining and Mineral Engineering.

The course structure aligned closely to the skills and knowledge I sought to advance my career path. It enabled me to update my knowledge of economic geology topics related to the discovery and evaluation of ore deposits.

Cristian Camilo Moreno Gomez – Master of Science (Geophysics)

I chose to study a Master of Science in Geophysics at Curtin because I was looking for a university with an excellent academic reputation … Curtin was ranked number two in the world for minerals and mining engineering.

I have found the course very valuable with its strong industry links and access to first-class laboratories.

Living in Perth has also been an unexpected bonus. The city is warm and welcoming and offers an incredible outdoor lifestyle.
