Railway Electrical Systems
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Transport and Aeronautics
The goal of the program “Railway Electrical Systems” is to educate and train specialists in the field of railway transport for the systems design and scientific work at an internationally recognized level.
Construction of a railway system is a huge undertaking. At the heart of this task lies the signaling system, which ensures the safe and sound operation of the railway system. Nowadays, the trend is for railway power supply systems to be operated electrically. That requires careful planning, operation, and maintenance of electric transmission and distribution systems and also understanding of the basic components in electrification.
Railway systems also require a good communication network to ensure safety and speed up the operations. This graduate program is designed so as to address the above three focus areas of the railway system.
The program trains engineers who can understand the electrical engineering aspect of railway system in its totality and the above three focus areas in particular.
