Through partnerships with the Federal Highway Administration and the NC Department of Transportation, we have instituted an innovative program that allows our students to pursue a professional career in the field of Right of Way. Students have the opportunity to choose a plan of study that is unique in the nation and the only one of its kind in the state of North Carolina.
Government agencies at the Federal, state, county, and city levels, as well as private entities like utility companies, use right of way to secure private property for public benefit. Building new highways and parks, widening of streets, creating greenways for utilities…all involve the right of way process.
Many different real estate disciplines are involved in this profession including appraising, plan reading, real estate law, environmental issues, relocations, property management, land acquisitions, brokerage, valuations, and negotiations.
This curriculum is specifically designed to engage students in a rigorous academic environment that includes both classroom and on-site training. Students will visit work in progress sites to meet construction supervisors, right of way practitioners and other professionals associated with right of way. Internships are also available within the North Carolina Department of Transportation. We prepare our students for a professional career that is rewarding in job experience and compensation.
The Right of Way Program is housed in The Center for Real Estate Management and Development in the Division of Business.
