About This Group

Effective September 7, 2024

Mission

To encourage sharing and application of knowledge about engineering and construction and advancing these practices in public works, pursuing APWA’s mission to develop and support the people, agencies, and organizations that plan, build, maintain, and improve our communities.

About the Committee

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

  • To provide information about emerging engineering, construction, and society trends, and new insights into the implication of engineering practice for our communities and quality of life.
  • To support the 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 the development of community values and public policy, supporting wise investment and use of society’s resources for public works.

Resources for Members

The Resource Center has a collection of educational resources our engineering and construction community can listen to, read, or watch. These items include recorded sessions from past PWX events, past CLLs, past APWA Reporter magazine articles, and other programs of interest to engineering and construction professionals.
