Infrastructure and Transport Management

The Infrastructure and Transport Management specialisation enables students to examine infrastructure and transport from a planning, policy, and management perspective. Major transport links and other key infrastructure such as electricity and communications networks involve multi dollar projects and 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 are provided with the theory and tools to be able to successfully plan, assess, manage, and finance large transport and infrastructure projects.
