After a successful first two years, the two organisations will continue the jointly-led Railway Engineering Master’s Degree programme for a third year.
The aim of the degree course is to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary training for students in all areas of railway engineering, from rolling stock to rail control and signalling to safety and maintenance.
The course curriculum comprises both theoretical and practical training with students able to work with the latest tools and solutions used in the industry and complete internships with leading companies in the industry, including Bombardier.
The Master’s Degree programme is taught on the campus of the Carlos III University in Leganés, Madrid. In 2015, 20 students were enrolled up in the Master’s Degree, eleven found jobs in the railway sector including seven who are working, directly or indirectly, in Bombardier.
