Curtin University Sarawak
Curtin University Sarawak is an off-shore campus of Curtin University, a university based in Perth, Western Australia. It provides local and international students with higher education in Sarawak, Malaysia. The use of modern technology on the campus is also very extensive as Curtin places great emphasis on utilising technology to support teaching, learning and research.
Curtin Sarawak's modern campus has often been described a piece of Australia transplanted in Sarawak. Many equate it to stepping into another world. Thus is the uniqueness and allure of the campus.
With the opening of the impressive 300-acre campus in the suburb of Senadin to the north of the city in 2002, Curtin established a firm foothold in Malaysia. Prior to that, for some three years, the fledgling campus occupied temporary premises at a secondary school at Riam Road in the city's southern outskirts.
Significant investment in computing and networking facilities continues to be made to ensure facilities are state-of-the-art. The campus currently has 14 computer labs with over 400 PCs for student use in addition to terminals located in the library that provide access to the library's online databases. Furthermore, sophisticated IT linkages provide access to the online resources of the main campus in Perth. Click here for more information.
