After graduating from the University of Adelaide in 2012 with Bachelor of Engineering: Civil & Structural I began work as a Site Engineer, gaining experience working on projects such as wetlands, subdivisions, train stations and various road upgrade projects. In March 2015 I joined Adelaide Airport in the role of Civil Engineer, working within the Projects Delivery Team. In this position I worked on delivering capital projects, with a focus on airside civil works, large resurfacing/overlay projects and road works. Upon completion of my Masters in 2020 my role transitioned to Airport Engineer. My current role includes; Design of engineering works, managing nominated capital works projects; and management of runways, taxiways, aprons and roads.
Program Graduates will lead the design, building and maintenance of their nation’s complex transportation infrastructure in a sustainable manner.
Program graduates will have the capacity to effectively apply their learning to a wide range of asset management situations and systems, and the potential to develop into highly competent asset management professionals.
Graduates will have developed skills to effectively apply their learning to managing a wide range of project types and situations, and the potential to develop into highly competent project management professionals.
In a recent survey, Industry employers valued that the program went beyond the ‘vocational’ by providing more and broader knowledge than was needed to simply conduct routine pavement designs. They noted that graduates had a better understanding of how design of pavements and materials fitted into the broader infrastructure procurement and life-cycle.
Graduates valued that the program ‘brought it all together’ by providing a framework in which all the knowledge they needed was arranged, allowing them to link concepts and tools easily. Long-past graduates voiced the view that the program had allowed them to do more in the way of pavements and materials, and to operate more effectively over the intervening years.
