Master of Engineering (Civil: Railway Infrastructure)
Through EIT’s online delivery, railway engineers can study the degree from anywhere in the world. The blend of differing railway contexts, operating standards, practices, and policies experienced by these engineers resident in many countries will provide a unique learning opportunity for them as they interact with each other throughout the degree.
Despite the very diverse locations of railway infrastructure engineers, the course coordinators and lecturers work hard to build a sense of professional community among the students.
The program is delivered using a wide range of learning activities such as live webinars, written assignments, case studies, team projects, remote laboratories, and more. These experiences aim to get the students interacting via technology-based learning experiences that highlight shared skills and knowledge derived from the many cultural and technical contexts in which the students are working.
Suitability - Who should attend?
