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.

Career outcomes

Careers in the private and public sector where the principal role is the road construction and pavementengineering.

Professional Recognition

Professional recognition will come through the proposed course being promoted by State RoadAuthorities to its stakeholders. The course will also be promoted by CPEE founding partners


Austroads and the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association (AAPA) and supported by CPEE partners

the Institute of Public Works Engineers Australia (IPWEA) and the Australian Water Association (AWA
