The Industry Research Unit provides the opportunity for students to undertake research that will augment their professional work in pavement engineering and form a foundation for future learning and professional development. The project is designed to impart cognitive skills to think critically about research methods, planning, analysis and presentation. The unit encompasses research investigation involving the analysis and interpretation of data, or a critical review and interpretation of literature on an approved topic.
The research provides an opportunity for the practical application and integration of the student’s professional background and skills, and studies in supporting units of the Master of Pavement Technology.
The following is a selection of projects which have been developed and submitted to CPEE as part of our students research project unit. These projects are the culmination of a students study and learnings throughout their time with CPEE.
The theses listed here were created as an educational exercise which formed part of and contributed to the overall learning outcomes with respect to the CPEE Master of Pavement Technology award program. The thesis, any associated hardware, software, drawings, and other material set out in any associated appendices are used entirely at the risk of the user.
