MULTIDISCIPLINARY EDUCATION IN TRANSPORTATION

This report includes papers presented during the Conference on Multidisciplinary Education in Transportation sponsored by the Highway Research Board and by the Transportation Studies Center of the University of Pennsylvania. Ten papers discuss the issues and problems facing transportation educators. Conclusions of the Conference: A new profession and discipline are in existence today; efforts in transportation education have not reached any level that satisfies professionals and educators; the perplexity and ambivalence that characterize transportation are also manifested in educational efforts in the field; the two branches of transportation (engineering and social sciences) are not compatible; institutions of higher learning have not been convinced that transportation should have special advantage over any other multidisciplinary field.
