Curtin University Sarawak Campus, Malaysia (Curtin Sarawak) is the first offshore campus of Curtin University, Western Australia (Curtin Western Australia). Located in Miri, Sarawak, Curtin Sarawak is the first foreign university campus to be set up in East Malaysia.
Curtin’s reputation for excellence in the South East Asian region provided the basis for Sarawak State Government’s initiative to invite Curtin to establish an international university in Sarawak. Curtin Sarawak has been actively involved in Malaysian education for the past two decades and the establishment of Curtin Sarawak’s campus ensures that it will continue to increase its contributions towards excellence in Malaysian tertiary education.
Curtin Sarawak’s operations in Miri, Sarawak commenced in February 1999. In 2002, the new purpose-built campus in a garden opened, which is a world-class facility where stylish architecturally designed buildings complement state-of-the-art equipment and facilities coupled with sophisticated IT linkages to provide students access to the resources of Curtin, Western Australia.
In November 1999, Curtin Sarawak was awarded the Multimedia Super Corridor status and was renewed in 2006.
