International Expert features in CPD Workshops
CPEE and The University of Sunshine Coast (USC) are combining to present the Pavement Engineering for Roads and Runways workshop series in Melbourne and Sydney. USC will also be presenting a Seminar at their campus on the Sunshine Coast, supported by CPEE. This is a unique opportunity for current engineers, technologists and asset managers to avail themselves of the latest developments from Europe and gain an insight into key technology issues of today through Keynote presentations by Emeritus Professor Andre Molenaar. This will be in concert with updates on Australian innovations and practices featuring Australian experts.
The program will provide a focussed opportunity for those in the road and pavement engineering sector to gain continuing professional development of both Australian and International developments. It is ideal for engineers and engineering technologists working for federal, state or local authorities, consultants and contractors. The Seminar to be held at USC/Sunshine Coast: May 24-26, and Workshops held in Melb: May 29-30 and Syd: June 1-2.
Keynote Speaker: Emeritus Professor André Molenaar - Amsterdam, The Netherlands
In 1972 André Molenaar obtained his MSc degree in civil engineering at the Delft University of Technology. After finishing his studies, André worked as scientific officer as the Chair of Highway Engineering of the Delft University and in 1977 he joined the laboratory for Road and Railroad Research.
He obtained his PhD in 1983. In 1985 he was appointed as managing director of Netherlands Pavement Consultants. In 1988 he returned to the Delft University as part-time professor in Highway Engineering, and in 1990 was appointed as full-time professor.
His duties outside the University include chairing many CROW committees and member of various RILEM committees in Europe, as well as member of the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists in the USA.
In 2001 André was appointed as visiting professor at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa and in 2005 he was appointed to a similar position at the Wuhan Technical University in China. André has lectured in many countries and has acted as a consultant in many projects all over the world. He has been a Keynote Speaker in many Australian and South African conferences and is very aware of the Australian environment and pavement technology and its practices.
