Course content

Railway businesses rely on advanced technical and operational systems to carry vast numbers of passengers in densely populated areas and large quantities of goods over long distances.

This Master of Research (MRes) programme prepares you for a career in research and development in railway businesses and companies supplying railways with advanced technical and operational systems. By developing your analytical skills and research know-how, the programme can also serve as a stepping stone to doctoral studies.

The MRes offers a unique opportunity for students to undertake a research-based Masters degree together with technical study in a relevant railway systems or engineering subject. Students benefit from participating in both the fundamental and applied research carried out within the Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education, and from the world-leading educational programmes offered by the Centre.
