Infrastructure and Transport Management

postgraduate specialisation

Transport and infrastructure is the physical fabric that binds society together. The movement of people and the goods and services we produce is a vital part of economic and business activity and is critical to our well-being. Major transport links and other key infrastructure such as electricity and telecommunications networks are expensive to build and maintain. These multi-billion dollar projects are decisions that captivate the attention of the public but have complex objectives which have real impacts on society with sometimes controversial outcomes. It is, therefore, important to understand the travel demands of an economy, to carefully and strategically plan and assess new infrastructure requirements, and efficiently manage and maintain existing assets. In this specialisation students examine infrastructure and transport from a planning, policy, and management perspective and are provided with the theory and tools to be able to successfully plan, assess, manage, and finance large transport and infrastructure projects.
