Months of entry
Combining core railway knowledge with project management, our Railway Engineering with Project Management MSc (Eng) will prepare you to construct and operate the world’s new rail lines. Considering the huge global growth in new railway lines, this presents exciting opportunities for graduates. In particular, industry growth has created a shortage of skilled railway engineers and thus salaries have grown rapidly in recent years.
The course is taught in conjunction with the University of Leeds’s world leading Institute of High Speed Rail and Institute for Transport Studies.
You'll be taught by staff who are professionally experienced and have the latest research expertise, equipping you with the practical and professional skills that employers want.
A series of compulsory modules will develop your knowledge and skills in a range of areas. You’ll gain an understanding of the wider issues surrounding railway engineering, economics in a railway context and project management. You’ll understand engineering responses to railway planning, track design, integration and resilience. You’ll also consider the operation of railway systems and develop an understanding of risk management on rail infrastructure.
The dissertation project is one of the most satisfying elements of this course. It allows you to apply what you’ve learned to a piece of research focusing on a real-world problem, and it can be used to explore and develop your specific interests. This is a chance to demonstrate the knowledge and skills you’ve gained and specialise in a research area that relates to your career ambitions.
