European Railway Study Tour
Module Title - European Railway Study Tour
Number of credits - 10
The European study tour is included in the programme to allow delegates to experience at first hand some of the most advanced railway systems and subsystems available in Europe, before setting out on their dissertation project. It is an opportunity for benchmarking one’s earlier experience.
The tour both stimulates thought and prevents the participants from re-inventing the wheel, encouraging individuals to learn from a wide range of approaches to rail-way operations and engineering.
Destinations to date have included Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
The study tour is assessed by a report and a presentation.
