About Curtin University, Malaysia
Located in Miri, Sarawak; Curtin Malaysia boasts a 1,200-acre garden campus and modern facilities befitting its status as Curtin’s largest international campus, and one of Malaysia’s leading tertiary institutions according to Malaysia’s SETARA ratings.
Our campus in Miri, Sarawak offers a completely unique study experience.

Miri is often referred to as the ‘Oil Town of Malaysia’ as it is home to the country’s over 100-year-old petroleum industry, as well as Sarawak’s ‘Resort City’ given its scenic seaside location and being the gateway city to the area’s world renowned natural attractions. The oil and gas industry remains the largest contributor to the economy of Sarawak but other industries such as forestry and agriculture burgeoned in the years following Sarawak’s independence through the formation of Malaysia in 1963. In recent years, the construction, shipbuilding, retail, financial services, tourism, education and manufacturing sectors have also contributed greatly to the city’s rapid economic growth. Today, Miri boasts a splendid waterfront, marina, shopping malls, luxury condominiums, two 18-hole golf courses, international class hotels and a modern airport.
