The Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education will be hosting an Open Day on Tuesday 2 June 2015

Whether you are new to Birmingham, or already a student here, our Open Day is an opportunity to learn more about the University and our railway engineering courses, and to meet our staff and current students. 

Our open days are designed to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice. You will have the opportunity to attend talks about the many taught and research opportunities available to you and to have your questions answered by our lecturers and students.

Railway engineering courses at the University will provide you with an excellent opportunity to develop your knowledge in a specialist area of your choice, to enhance your employability and to stand out from the rest in the eyes of potential employers.
