Graduate Certificate in Pavement Technology (2016 and prior)
Please note - This program structure is no longer available for new enrolments. Please refer to the 2017 program structure.
The course aims to provide place-bound professional engineers in public works and industry positions with access to modern tools to efficiently design and construct durable road and highway pavements. The road pavement industry experience is that a specialist qualification is important in raising the status of professionals in the industry, and the distance education mode allows courses to be readily offered to candidates throughout Australia and New Zealand as well as overseas. The distance mode will greatly assist the ongoing learning process for those who change employer and/or are located in rural/regional areas and are unable to access traditional face-to-face university programs.

Roads and pavements form a large component of the national investment in infrastructure, and there is increasing appreciation of the need for efficient pavement design and construction to minimize the long-term lifecycle costs, including operation, maintenance, management and renewal of these major physical assets. This will add to the demand for technical specialists with road pavement engineering skills and career opportunities exist with Federal and State government authorities, local authorities, private civil and mining companies, civil engineering contractors, engineering consulting firms and regulatory organizations.
Austroads and the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association (AAPA) the founding members of the Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE), support the program and the qualification is recognised by the road industry.
