Abstract:

The Transportation Research Board Committee on Transportation Education and Training organized a special conference on the needs and opportunities that face transportation education and training. The objectives of the conference were to: (1) define the skills and educational backgrounds needed by new transportation professionals at all levels to meet the challenges they will likely face during their careers--these challenges were to be viewed from the perspectives of transportation system employers, educators, and users; (2) review the education and training currently being offered by academic institutions, technical schools, continuing education programs, and in-house training programs, and assess their capability to meet evolving needs and propose changes required in these programs to meet evolving needs; and (3) recommend other concepts and actions that will enhance the continuing contributions of transportation education and training to the profession and to improvements in transportation.
