Considering the huge global growth in new railway lines, this presents exciting opportunities for graduates. In particular, industry growth has created a shortage of skilled railway engineers and thus salaries have grown rapidly in recent years.

You'll be taught by staff who are professionally experienced and have the latest research expertise, equipping you with the practical and professional skills that employers want.
Upon graduation you may expect to find employment in a range of roles across the railway construction industry, as a railway engineer, planning engineer or project manager among many others. Opportunities also exist with multidisciplinary consulting organisations, while many of our graduates return to work for government agencies and other large client organisations.
