The Public Works Engineering program leads the way researching and developing solutions in sustainable public works planning and infrastructure management, utility relocation tort cases, typical intersection crash pattern, quick response for major oil spill, user cost data for bridge management systems, feeder bus service for downtown people mover, construction pay adjustment technique, user cost at work zone, control of radon mitigation before building construction, and evaluation of fiber optic placement along the highway right-of-way. Courses include Public Works Planning, Public Works Management, Financial Accounting, Municipal Refuse Disposal, Developing Leadership Skills, and Facilities Operation and Maintenance.

The Faculty's research is recognized for its prominence and for its impact in understanding new house evaluation and Radon mitigation, effective oil spill response capabilities, truck damage factor determination, durability of in-situ pipe repair, guidelines for storm water infrastructure, durability of pavement marking, preventive maintenance strategy, use of flowable fill in pavement sections, and user cost data for bridge management

The Faculty's research is funded by Federal and State agencies, as well as by industrial sponsors. Research trains students to become tomorrow's creative and innovative leaders. Graduates are thoroughly prepared for challenging positions in academia; research institutions; government within cities, counties, states, and federal agencies; industry; and private consulting.
