The transportation engineers's profession is affected by changes in economics, in politics, and the public demand for transportation. The challenges facing the profession are as follows: a shortfall in the supply of transportation engineers; the need for bolstering the image of the profession; and the need for adequate and predictable funding. The future success depends on how skillfully directions are chosen. Long range strategic planning directions will guide the profession through the 1990s. The profession must champion the importance of transportation systems to society's economic vitality, productivity, and competitiveness.
