Curtin University and the University of Aberdeen form strategic alliance

Curtin University and the University of Aberdeen have joined forces to deliver high-impact research and innovative teaching programmes across four key areas: energy, medicine and health, creative arts and business.

The Aberdeen-Curtin Alliance will draw on the strength of both universities and create opportunities for global collaboration as well as staff and student mobility.

As part of the university alliance a new Global Energy Institute will be formed.  The new institute will enable the University of Aberdeen and Curtin University to collaborate in energy-related taught postgraduate programmes; higher degree by research training; professional development programmes and government and industry engagement. 

In 2017, the first year of the alliance, the Global Energy Institute will be offering a taught Masters degree in Subsea Engineering across both University campuses as well as introducing six new research projects.

Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry said: “The Global Energy Institute will capitalise on the strengths of both universities in the fields of oil, gas and renewables, and provide an internationally recognised hub for delivering world-class research and education programmes.”

Projects have also started across the other subject areas, you can find out more about the opportunities available through the Aberdeen-Curtin Alliance on the website.
