This study of manpower needs is part of a larger project which is administered by the Transportation Safety Research Program of the University of Iowa. The project is funded by a Highway Safety Project Grant from the United States Department of Transportation and these funds are matched by in-kind traffic engineering services of the Iowa State Highway Commission. In Iowa, the federal funds for this type of project are received by the Director, Office of Planning and Programming and such projects proceed with his approval. The basic aim of the larger project is to establish a program at the University of Iowa whereby short courses and workshops in traffic engineering applications will be developed. The selection of this aim is based on the assumption that the number of trained traffic engineering personnel in Iowa is limited. This limitation is one of the major deficiencies of the present overall state traffic safety program. The study reported herein has resulted in concurrence with the above assumption. It also has determined attitudes toward the desire for training in the area of traffic engineering by personnel of the state, county and city governments in Iowa.
