July 12-14, 2016 - Urbana, IL
The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) is the railway industry’s professional organization that, among its other goals, promotes railway engineering education. In response to this challenge, AREMA’s Education and Training Committee developed the Railway Engineering Education Symposium (REES). REES is intended to foster interest among university faculty in railway engineering with the goal of encouraging and supporting their interest in adding railway engineering content to their current engineering courses and curricula. The inaugural REES was held in June 2008, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Urbana, Illinois.
REES 2016 will occur this summer as part of The Railway Academic Conference (TRAC) on July 12-14 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), in conjunction with the annual meeting of the National University Rail Center (NURail). The seven introductory REES content modules are available online for downloading and review prior to the event. REES modules related to civil, electrical and mechanical engineering will be presented on July 12. A field tour will occur on the morning of July 13. The tour will give you the chance to see the railway environment first hand and to illustrate the possibility of conducting organized field trips in cooperation with railways near your respective institution as part of your instructional activities.
