A Message from the Chair

About the Committee

Engineering and technology are fundamental to public works and to almost all aspects of modern life. The resources the E&T Committee has made available through this website have three primary objectives:

  • To provide information about emerging technology, technical and society trends, and new insights into the implication of engineering practice for our communities and quality of life,
  • To support education of public works practitioners, users, and other stakeholders about the issues, techniques, and tools of public works management,
  • To inform advocacy by APWA and others for development of community values and public policy supporting wise investment and use of society’s resources for public works.
