Welcome Message from Dr. Zaman

The Pavement Materials and Systems Group (PMSG) at the University of Oklahoma,Norman is a multi-disciplinary group of faculty, staff and students(graduate and undergraduate) engaged in research, education and scholarship, advancing new ideas, developing innovative and implementable technologies, materials and methods.

The group works closely with mission agencies(specifically state Departments of Transportation, Department of Environmental Quality and Federal Highway Administration) and the industry, to not only develop and support its research program but to pursue workforce development, training and technology transfer activities. The annual funding(expenditures) of the group is more than $1 million. The PMSG seeks collaboration with other groups, institutions, companies and agencies. We hope the information in this website is helpful. We appreciate your feedback.
