The Challenge

The transportation field is changing rapidly. Not so long ago, most transportation professionals were civil engineers; in the near future, with the advent of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and other new technologies, transportation will need to attract large numbers of computer systems engineers, telecommunications people, environmentalists, technologists from a wide number of disciplines, and others. Civil engineering will remain a core discipline. The transportation industry recognizes the need to recruit the best and the brightest young people.
