Recruit and Maintain/Upgrade a High-Tech Workforce for Emerging Technologies

The construction and operations of transportation-related infrastructure is poised to undergo a dramatic shift due to rapidly emerging technologies in the next ten years. This shift will expose work force to these emerging technologies that are either already filtering in or will rapidly impact the industry soon. Upgraded training is necessary to ensure that the work force is ready for the technological shift. If the workforce recruitment and maintenance is not planned and not developed in view of the technological shift, there is expected to be serious void in the implementation and operation of various infrastructure projects. It will be critical to identify the attributes and impacts of emerging technologies that will require a differently trained work force for construction and operations of transportation-related infrastructure
