The academic programme covers railway systems engineering from a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach, which includes the design and development of digital safety and control systems (railway signalling), electric traction, rolling stock design, as well as services and maintenance of the systems. After completing the master’s degree, students will be able to plan, evaluate, design and develop systems in the railway sector, as well as to include safety criteria in all types of design.

Methodology combines theory and practice, providing students with virtual and experimental tools, taking also into account the importance of applying the technical standards and legislation that regulate the railway sector. The course also includes practical training and visits to different rolling stock, components and systems manufacturing facilities, as well as railway operators’ sites.

Professors from the university, active professionals from Alstom in Spain and other railway experts will form the teaching staff for this master’s degree. Admission process has already begun and will remain open until all 30 places available are filled.
