If you have been looking on the CPEE website recently you may have noticed that a number of our distance learning unit titles are changing for 2017. In addition to the new titles a number of units have undergone content review which has resulted in some subject matter being moved/revised to further improve the learning outcomes of the program.
An opportunity open to all Distance Learning Students and CPEE Short Course delegates is the chance to gain a Roads Australia sponsored 2017 R.A Fellowship. We are pleased to advise that nominations are now being called for the 2017 Roads Australia Fellowship Program, an industry-leading mentoring program.
CPEE Student Excellence Awards
Last year, CPEE successfully launched its Annual Student Excellence Awards program and thirteen students were rewarded with a cash prize of $500 each and a formal certificate of achievement, presented at a prestigious event near their home or convenient major centre.
The Awards will again be offered for outstanding performance in Units of study from Semesters 1 and 2.
The CPEE Annual Student Excellence Award gives recognition to students who have demonstrated excellence in their performance during the period of consideration, whilst undertaking either of the postgraduate programs, the Graduate Certificate of Pavement Technology, the Master of Pavement Technology or the Bachelor of Engineering (Professional Honours) in "Road Engineering and Construction".
CPEE is in the midst of a period of significant demand for short course training with a total of seven 1, 2 and 3 day courses being requested by individual state road agencies and Councils.
Maintenance being the major focus its an indicator that the pressure is on for better outcomes with reduced funding and the courses were seen as a way to have improved capability in employees and awareness of the latest techniques and practical experiences to enable improved performance of the road asset.
CPEE is launching its Australia wide Pavement Design & Construction series of training courses this month in Brisbane and Sydney, providing updated design & construction principles and techniques for roads and pavements. With growing pressure on asset management and minimisation of maintenance costs, the appropriate and smart starting point is to get the design and construction fundamentals right. More information on the Concrete and the Flexible Pavement Courses at the CPEE website.
The University of Tasmania, Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE)and IPWEA recognised some years back that there was a need for increased capability and knowledge in infrastructure asset management skills.

This formal University post-graduate qualifications is via Distance Learning allowing study from any location in Australia, or from overseas.
