Master of Engineering (Civil: Railway Infrastructure) (Blended Learning)
The Master of Engineering (Civil: Railway Infrastructure) will equip you with the necessary skills to address the demands of the railway engineering industry. You will receive high-level professional and technical development for engineers working with track and the infrastructure in the rail corridor.
Upon completion of this program, you will gain skills and knowledge in the latest and developing technologies in railway infrastructure. The billions of dollars’ worth of public and private resources invested in rail track infrastructure around the world demand a well-trained and competent engineering workforce for the safe and efficient operation of the track and associated assets. However, developments over the past twenty years, such as downsizing of public railway authorities, increased retirement of experienced employees, privatization, and the rapid expansion of the rail industry have left engineers with severely limited pathways to upskill themselves quickly.
Learners are able to:
• learn about the operation and management of their rail organisations by experience.
• Provide an introduction of the main assets and resources used to operate and maintain a railway.
