Railway Engineering

Houses, roads, drains and other infrastructure.

Railway engineering is a specialist field in transportation engineering. Railways are designed exclusively for the movement of trains to transport people and/or freight. The design, construction and operation of trains and rail systems are all dealt with in this discipline. Railway engineers possess mechanical design skills and knowledge of propulsion systems that allows them to design train vessels. Railway engineers are frequently on site, either supervising the rail system or in a ‘hands on’ capacity.
