Introduction To Practical Railway Engineering

Participants benefiting the most from this course are those with limited exposure to the railway industry, or railroaders with highly specialized positions. For example, a structural engineer well versed in highway bridge design but with some exposure to railway bridge design would gain valuable knowledge about track, signals, and railway operations typically unfamiliar to those outside the industry. The benefits from this seminar include, contact with other railroad professionals through our low student/instructor ratio. Participants will gain a greater appreciation for the technical and not-so-technical aspects of railroad engineering and operations. Registration fee includes a workbook containing printed copies of the presentation, and a digital copy of the Practical Guide to Railway Engineering ($200 value), an 800-page text published by AREMA. Professional Development Hours: 20
