Railway Systems Engineering and Integration

This programme is designed to provide the knowledge, know how and skills required to design and manage successfully the highly specialised subsystems and complex interfaces that characterise existing and new railways. The programme has a strong focus on developing railway engineering knowledge, system integration skills and the ability to work in focused project teams. Many participants are experienced railway engineers and managers, sponsored by their employers, but the programme also allows new entrants to the railway industry to familiarise themselves with the specialist disciplines involved in railway systems engineering, while also gaining an insight into the complex interactions between subsystems.

Entry requirements

The basic requirement is a good Honours degree in an appropriate science-related discipline (for example, Engineering, Physics, Economics or Mathematics) and evidence of a very good knowledge of the English language. However, practical experience may also be an important consideration.

Assessment methods

Assessment of students' learning is based on class tests, assignments, presentations and end of year examinations. All modules are assessed individually to allow flexible study.
