Welcome To CPEE

Welcome to studies bannerThe Centre for Pavement Engineering Education Inc. (CPEE) is an accredited private provider of higher education that specialises in courses servicing the road and pavement sector. With programs ranging from intensive one day short courses through to postgraduate Masters level awards, CPEE aims to meet the needs of someone new to the industry as well as the established practicing professional.

CPEE's strong links to University and industry partners provide courses that are a unique mix of academic learning combined with real world practical experience.

2016 Student Excellence Award Winners

The judging for the 2016 Student Excellence Awards was completed late in December following ratification of student results across 11 eligible units throughout Semesters 1 and 2 in 2016.
With many high performing students this posed a somewhat welcomed but difficult task in the judges reaching their final determination, however all eleven recipients deserved due acknowledgement.

An Opportunity for Recognition and Reward

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".

Continual Improvement -  Our Programs in 2017

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.

Unit Titles 2016 v 2017

For existing students currently studying with CPEE, depending on the program of study, the following changes should be noted. 

Roads Australia Fellowship Program – 2017

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.

A limited number of outstanding candidates from across the Australia will be selected to participate in this third intake for the program. Nominations are due on Monday, 8 August 2016 by email to Juliana Stackpool on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Sponsored by John Holland Group, the Fellowship Program pairs national industry leaders (as Mentors) with high performing people with 10-15 years of work experience.

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.
