Infrastructure Engineering and Management - E6008

Infrastructure Engineering and Management

Expert master degree

The planning, design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure is crucial to the economic viability of Australia. Skilled professionals are required to maintain ageing infrastructure, integrate new infrastructure into existing systems, and expand existing infrastructure. And it must be done in a way that is socially, environmentally and financially sustainable.

The Master of Infrastructure Engineering and Management will equip students to meet these important challenges. The program was developed in response to the growing need for engineers with advanced knowledge of the characteristics and significance of infrastructure, including its technological, economic and social impact.

The course is aimed at giving students a thorough understanding of the nature of infrastructure and its operation and management. To achieve these aims, the development of appropriate analytical skills and practical knowledge is stressed, together with recognition of the role of other disciplines in tackling infrastructure-related issues.

Graduates will be able to:

  • plan and execute the development of infrastructure projects
  • understand the need to plan, develop and maintain infrastructure at a high level
  • recognise the importance of whole of life considerations in achieving the best operation of infrastructure
  • evaluate alternative projects and policies in a rigorous manner
  • evaluate critically the work of others
  • communicate effectively to teams and clients.

This off-campus course is aimed at managers, engineers and technical staff who undertake asset management in local and state governments. It is also for those who are involved in the management of infrastructure such as roads, railways, buildings, bridges, tunnels, dams and pipelines.

The master's program is designed and administered with the assistance of professionals in the field. Through these contributions, which includes representatives of government departments, local government, research institutions and private firms with an interest in infrastructure, the course material incorporates the most up-to-date needs and opportunities related to infrastructure education.
