Summary

This report examines issues related to transportation education, with the objective of developing and packaging transportation-related materials for use in college and university transportation education programs. The study was conducted by the Southwest Region University Transportation Center (SWUTC) region, but it is expected that the results will be applicable nationally. A questionnaire survey assessed the education needs of various types of employers that hire transportation professionals and the level of transportation-related knowledge employers expect of undergraduates hired into entry-level positions. The survey also examined transportation education resources at universities in the SWUTC region. The report recommends that four transportation topics receive high priority for action by an education alliance--traffic engineering, traffic operations, highway capacity, and transportation planning--and also suggests that universities with expertise develop appropriate educational materials, that a regional task force works to ensure that specific needs are met, and that universities and employers in the region create an alliance to address the educational needs of the profession. The five sections of the report include an introduction; a discussion of current education needs; current educational resources; delivery mechanisms; and findings and recommendations. The employer survey and the university survey are appended. (CH)
