The Annual CPEE Student Excellence Awards give recognition to students who have demonstrated excellence in their performance during the academic year whilst undertaking specialist technical postgraduate units offered by CPEE and by its partner University, the University of Tasmania.
As with previous years, the eligibility criteria required to be considered is for students to have achieved 'distinction' grade level and/or have demonstrated excellence in their development with at least 'credit' grade level and have shown compelling commitment. The individual Unit Awards are sponsored by key organisations within the roads and pavements sector with each unit award winner receiving a monetary amount of $500 and the Student Excellence Award Certificate. Selection is based on academic results across the 2017 year.
