Why study Railway Engineering?

Studying Railway Engineering will not only give you an accredited degree in either Civil Engineering or Electrical Engineering, but also the foundations of an exciting and rewarding career where your skills and knowledge will be highly sought-after. Railway projects are booming: new mainline railways and urban transportation developments are taking place around the world, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Advances in technology mean new ways to manage railway systems and improve how we move about. This means that there is already a high demand for civil and electrical engineers who understand the specific details of the railway sector and who understand the complex nature of railway systems.
