COMMITTEE 24--SPECIAL REPORT--RAILROAD ENGINEERING EDUCATION IN THE UNITED STATES

In an effort to determine the extent to which today's civil engineering graduates are academically prepared for work in the railroad industry, a study on railroad engineering education in the U.S. was conducted by Committee 24. The study was carried out with two questionnaires. One questionnaire was prepared and sent to colleges and universities with 4-year civil engineering bachelor's degree programs in an attempt to determine the education in railroad engineering and related fields offered by educational institutions. The other questionnaire was designed to survey the opinions of major employers in the railroad field as to the qualifications of recently graduated civil engineering students hired between 1973-1977.
