CTI’s founder, Professor Eric Charoux recalled the beginning of the partnership. “When we approached Curtin University 14 years ago, we wanted and needed three things:  A partner university committed to the long-term, one that could produce work-ready graduates, and one that would place as much emphasis on quality as we did,” Professor Charoux said.

The Vice-Chancellor of Curtin University, Professor Deborah Terry commented, ”We are delighted to extend our partnership with CTI and to be located in a country with ambitions to become an education hub for the African and Indian Ocean region, a vision that aligns with our strategic ambitions to extend our global footprint in these areas”.

The Australian High Commissioner to Mauritius, Her Excellency, Jenny Dee welcomed the announcement to open the Curtin (Mauritius) campus.  “This is a milestone in Australia’s relations with Mauritius as an education partner and demonstrates the commitment of Australian education institutions to support the development of Mauritius as a regional education hub,” Ms Dee said.
