The proposed role for engineering schools in urban planning education and research is outlined. Discussion is included on the future of urban planning and the types of roles and responsibilities for which education is needed. A brief historical view is given of the social forces which have helped to shape urban planning in the past. This is then extrapolated to suggest several probable future conditions and demands relating to the profession. Urban systems engineering and planning are discussed with reference to the multidisciplinary professional and an interdisciplinary course at Northwestern University. An argument is then presented in support of a particular mission for planning programmes located in engineering schools. /TRRL/
