Designing and building a railway is one thing – making a train go somewhere is quite another.

By specialising in power you’ll learn all about the systems and technologies used to get people moving and make the railway line work as it should.

This specialism combines elements of electronic and mechanical engineering and will also teach you about designing, installing and managing both the equipment and the energy required to power a high-speed rail network.

You’ll need to be able to assess and interpret different theories and both paper-based and digital designs and schematics. Ultimately, you’ll be in demand as one of the key parts of a railways operation.
You’ll need a really keen attention to detail and the ability to interpret (and act on) complicated data and technical information.
