About our program

Pavements and materials engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno is a nationally recognized teaching, research and training program.  Faculty and student researchers focus on developing innovative asphalt mixtures or improved processes for laying pavement that can improve its ability to stand up to stress and harsh weather.

Our program is  home to the Western Regional Superpave Center, one of five centers established by the Federal Highway Administration to promote the implementation of superpave technology.
