Graduate Certificate in Infrastructure Asset Management (N5C)

Overview  2018

ATAR

ATAR Clearly-In Rank

Clearly-in Rank

The Clearly-in Rank is the lowest score at which students were granted entry in the first offer round in 2015.

The Clearly-in rank should be used as a guide for entry. Note: entry to some courses requires a combination of criteria (ie. folio, interview, GMAT) not just ATAR alone.

  Australian Qualification Framework level: 8

This course may not be available to international students. Please see the list of distance courses (i.e. online and taken outside Australia) that are offered to international students

Please see N4I Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Professional Honours in Infrastructure Asset Management). Students apply and enrol in N4I but may exit with a Graduate Certificate in Infrastructure Asset Management.

The Centre for Pavement Engineering Education Inc. (CPEE) is an incorporated association established by Austroads (the National Association of State Road Authorities) and the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association (AAPA) in 1994. Since 1996 CPEE has offered postgraduate courses in pavement engineering jointly with Deakin and (2003) La Trobe universities and (2005) as a non self-accrediting higher education provider.

The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (IPWEA) is a professional organisation providing member services and advocacy for those involved in and delivering public works and engineering services to the community. Previously known as the Institute of Municipal Engineering Australia (IMEA), the organisation is now expanding its traditional local government engineering focus to public works and thereby covering all levels of government and private practice.

The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (IPWEA) supports the proposed course and has indicated it will commit to its development. IPWEA and CPEE have signed an agreement which outlines this commitment.

The link with IPWEA (the Institute of Public Works Engineers, Australia) will provide valuable exposure for the University. IPWEA represents engineers (mainly civil) working in local government throughout Australia and the International Infrastructure Management manual has been adopted in South Africa, U.K., U.S.A. and New Zealand. CPEE has links with the road industry within Australia and New Zealand as well as many overseas countries.

There are no other university courses dealing with Public Works Infrastructure Management. The proposed course complies with the requirements of the Australian Qualifications Framework for Graduate Certificates. The course is designed to provide "vocational skills and knowledge in a new professional area".


Provide place bound engineering managers tools to manage the Nation's infrastructure, initially concentrating in pavement engineering.

Career outcomes

The recent recognition of the long-term lifecycle costs associated with the operation, maintenance and renewal of physical assets has created the need for skills in the management of infrastructure networks such as roads, water supply, drainage and sewerage. State governments have legislation requiring local authorities to create and implement asset management plans for the physical infrastructure under their control. This will add to the demand for technical specialists with Infrastructure Asset Management qualifications. The demand for these skills is most significant in large local authorities where career opportunities now exist for specialist infrastructure asset managers.

Professional Recognition

The course is supported by the Institute of Public Works Engineers Australia (IPWEA) which also gives professional recognition to the award. Through the foundation members of CPEE Austroads and the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association acceptance and support is widespread and of high standing.

Course structure

The Graduate Certificate consists of two core units plus two elective units- 1 selected from List A and 1 selected from List B. Please refer to the Schedules for unit details.
