As part of our 50 Years of Innovation celebrations we’re highlighting some of the early innovators who helped shape Curtin into the successful, global university it is today.

On buildings around the Bentley campus large format posters have been installed to pay tribute to 22 Curtin ‘history makers’ who have forged new ground within Australia and beyond on behalf of the university.

During August and October, coffee cups sold at most Bentley campus coffee shops will feature 14 of Curtin University’s early history makers after whom buildings, roads, lecture theatres and other university facilities on the Bentley Campus are named.
