About This Group


To encourage sharing and application of knowledge about engineering and technology 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 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.

Resources for members

The Resource Center has a collection of education resources our Engineering and Technology community can listen to, read, or watch. These items include recorded sessions from past PWX (or International Public Works Congress & Exposition) events, past CLLs, past APWA Reporter magazine articles, and other programs of interest to Engineering and Technology professionals.

  • Engineering and Technology Knowledge Team
