Prior to 1985, the university was called the Western Australian Institute of Technology (WAIT), formed in 1966. Its nucleus comprised the tertiary programs formerly conducted in the Perth Technical College which opened in 1900.

By 1976, it had expanded from 2,000 to more than 10,000 students. In 1987, the institute became the Curtin University of Technology under provisions of the WA Institute of Technology Amendment Act 1986.
