This course addresses the important emerging field of infrastructure asset management for engineering graduates working in a local, state or federal government authority or seeking employment with any of those authorities. The course is a joint arrangement with the Centre for Pavement engineering Education and UTAS. CPEE has worked with the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (IPWEA) to design a course that will provide the necessary skills and knowledge for employment in advanced technical roles involving the management of infrastructure assets. The course will follow the guidelines set out for management of the physical infrastructure in the International Infrastructure Asset Management Manual which has been adopted by government authorities in Australia and a number of other countries.

Career outcomes

Careers in the private and public sector where the principal role is the development, management andmaintenance of major public infrastructure

Professional Recognition

It is anticipated that professional recognition of the course will follow its promotion by the Institute ofPublic Works Engineering Australia (IPWEA). Using its website and its extensive mailing list IPWEA


will send course information to its members and stakeholders that increasingly look to IPWEA and its

National Asset Management Strategy committee (NAMS) for leadership in Infrastructure AssetManagement.
