Engineering Asset Management

The vast majority of engineers in Australia, and around the world, are involved in managing engineering assets. Every day decisions are made that affect the lifecycle cost of a company’s highly valued assets and there are increasing expectations to demonstrate competency and transparency in these decisions. Engineering Asset Management has evolved into a recognised discipline and this course draws on evolving International Standards and best practice to equip asset managers to make rational decisions in an increasingly uncertain world.
