Course summary

Rail and rail systems engineering at the University of East London is designed to meet the increasing demand (national and international) for transport engineering professionals requiring technical skills in sustainable, integrated and intelligent rail infrastructure and rail systems. Graduates of the programme will be able to design, build, operate and manage the sophisticated and complex interfaces characterising existing and new railways and infrastructure. The programme will also enable you to gain strong theoretical knowledge and practical skills in civil and systems engineering with a core focus on the railway industry and its operations. You will be actively involved in developing the specific design and professional skills required by professional engineers and will tackle numerous design problems to develop your interpersonal, enterprise and employability skillset (aka mental wealth) along with analytical, technical and industrial decision-making abilities. Whilst studying all the major civil, mechanical and systems engineering subjects, you will also gain experience in a range of current railway system issues and disciplines. The programme will benefit from the opportunities to get involved in cutting edge research projects on built environment of infrastructure, geotechnics, coastal and transportation engineering. The programme also offers an optional placement year to all students, enabling you to experience the real world and effectively connect your UEL experience with the industry.
