Curtin University 50 years of innovation celebrations in Shanghai and Beijing

Curtin University is celebrating 50 years of innovation. That's 50 years since the first students graduated from our predecessor institution, the Western Australian Institute of Technology (WAIT), back in 1967. To mark this special milestone, we invite you to celebrate with us in Shanghai on Tuesday 2 May or in Beijing on Friday 5 May 2017.

A delegation of senior Curtin staff, including Professor Deborah Terry, Vice-Chancellor, Professor Seth Kunin, Deputy Vice-Chancellor International, and Dr Henry Li, Dean International – China, will be visiting Shanghai and Beijing. They look forward to catching-up with graduates from all fields of study and to sharing some of Curtin's recent news and developments.

Professor Kunin joined Curtin in April 2016 from Aberdeen University in the UK, where he led their very successful international strategy. He will share his exciting and ambitious plans for expanding Curtin's global footprint in international education, research and industry engagement.

Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to find out more about Curtin's global strategy and to be part of the University's special celebrations!
