The mission of the Public Works Department is to create an excellent academic environment where high caliber engineers graduate, and innovative young researchers get post graduate degrees. Degree holders from the Public Works Department (branch of Civil Engineering Department) are trained to effectively participate in major infrastructure projects, provide design services that improve the lifestyle of the public and cope with the socio-economic features of the society, and eventually significantly contribute to the development in Egypt. This is achieved through:

1- Continuous updating of undergraduate and graduate curricula to include most recent research findings and cater to public needs.
2- Continuous improvement of the laboratories and learning facilities to be in line with most recent advancements in construction technology.
