Infrastructure Asset Management

Professional Honours, Graduate Certificate

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.

Both the IPWEA and CPEE have agreed to support the Graduate Certificate of Infrastructure Asset Management. 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 Graduate Certificate is designed to provide vocational skills and knowledge in a new professional area.
