What then is the future of urban planning, and for what roles and responsibilities should planning schools be educating and training their students? These are vital issues that persistently appear in the planning literature of the 1960's and the early 1970's. I shall touch lightly on them in this paper in the course of outlining a proposed role for engineering schools in urban planning education and research.

The evolution of urban planning and the evolution of urbanized society have been intertwined since the birth of the profession. Thus this paper begins with a very brief historical view of the forces that have helped to shape urban planning in the past. This historical view then is extrapolated to suggest several probable future conditions and demands relating to the profession. The paper concludes with an argument in support of a particular mission for planning programs located in engineering schools.
