Bold, modern, industry and people-focused
The University of Aberdeen, Curtin University and the University of Calgary have formed a strategic alliance.
The existing strategic alliance between Aberdeen and Curtin has expanded to accommodate the additional strengths of UCalgary. These three universities are leading champions of the energy transition, and share mutual strengths and goals for a sustainable future.
Through education and research, we seek to work together in partnership to have a positive impact locally, nationally and globally.
Spanning three continents, the new alliance will:
- Support local, national and global stakeholders in the delivery of a just energy transition and a sustainable future for the world.
- Make a positive impact across the communities we serve.
- Develop engaged, globally competent citizens by providing them with opportunities to study and research.

About The University of Calgary
We've been ranked amongst the world's top universities and we've done it by pushing our limits, challenging ourselves to do better, and seeking knowledge – wherever that journey takes us. We're never afraid to question conventional wisdom, and we share what we find openly and eagerly. It's an approach that's led to exponential growth since we were founded in 1966.
The University of Calgary is spread across five campuses, with several field stations and unique facilities, each with its own distinctive purpose, setting and character.
