Designed to broaden the skills and knowledge gained in engineering undergraduate courses, as well as to provide specialist skills and knowledge in areas including route assessment, condition assessment and pavement design, construction and stabilisation. The course is a joint arrangement between CPEE and the School of Engineering at the University of Tasmania (UTAS). Further, CPEE has strong links with Austroads members particularly the state road authorities who have collaborated in producing road engineering construction standards and guides. Austroads documents have been adopted by road authorities in Australia and New Zealand and provide significant course reference material.
As roads and pavements form a large component of the national investment in infrastructure, there is increasing appreciation of the need for efficient design and construction to minimize the long-term lifecycle costs, including operation, maintenance, management and renewal of these major physical assets. This increases the demand for technical specialists with road engineering skills to take up career opportunities that exist with State governments, local authorities, private civil and mining companies, contracting, consulting and regulatory organizations.
The courses aim to provide place-bound professional engineers in public works and industry positions with access to modern tools to efficiently design and construct durable roads and highways.
This course is a joint arrangement with the Centre for Pavement Engineering Education and the School of Engineering at UTAS. CPEE offers industry recognised courses in specialist areas of Infrastructure Asset Management and Road Construction. CPEE has strong links with Austroads members particularly the state road authorities that have collaborated in producing road engineering construction standards and guidelines. These recently published Austroads documents have been adopted by road authorities in Australia and New Zealand. This course has been designed to assist with the understanding and dissemination of this information to practising engineers and is based on Austroads publications. The course provides a specialist capstone year for qualified engineers who wish to focus work in this area.
