Valuable Work Place Support for CPEE Students: Semester 2, 2018

The Centre for Pavement Education (CPEE) understands the importance of mentoring for student development when a supportive mentor shares their expertise, provides valuable feedback, and helps to answer technical questions. One of the final units that CPEE students undertake in their higher education program is a capstone unit involving a project relevant to their work with a formal mentor – student link. In this unit, workplace mentors play an important role by keeping in contact with students throughout the semester and using their skills, experience and knowledge to provide valuable feedback and guidance. Workplace mentors also assist the CPEE Unit Chair to grade the final reports produced by students.

CPEE Offering Opportunities to Enhance Career Prospects

With the significant infrastructure projects being undertaken across Australia, there is even more need for increased capability and knowledge in the work environment. The key technical areas associated with the design, construction and maintenance of road pavements and major infrastructure assets offer tremendous opportunities for skilled individuals. Put simply, updating the specific knowledge and expertise leads to a more productive workplace outcome and for individuals, increased advancement opportunities.

However, it is often inconvenient for those already in the workforce to study via face to face university courses. Fortunately, in addition to short courses, the Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE) offers online higher education courses that provide a unique and convenient option to enhance knowledge and qualifications without the need to attend classrooms.

New applications and re-enrolments into CPEE's targeted online programs are now open. Secure your place in one of our highly regarded specialist programs covering Roads, Pavements and Infrastructure Asset Management. The options on offer are:

CPEE TRAINING ‘SUPPORT’ FOR THE DROUGHT-AFFECTED GOULBURN COMMUNITY

The Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE) regularly provides road and pavement engineering education training in rural and regional Australia.

In recent months CPEE has become acutely aware of the drought conditions throughout New South Wales. As we often deliver road engineering training courses in regional areas, we meet people first hand and learn of the hardships faced by many in Australia’s rural communities.

Recently CPEE presented a short course in Goulburn on ‘Maintenance and Rehabilitation’, responding to a request from engineering staff of the Goulburn Mulwaree Council for a customised course to assist their ongoing cost-effective road maintenance and repair treatments.
