Module overview

This module provides comprehensive coverage of the main features of railway engineering and operations, including topics ranging from system planning through to the impacts of noise and vibration. During the module students will develop an appreciation of the distinctive features of engineering in the railway context, while also making links with more general engineering and transport planning practice. The module will combine theoretical analysis with practical applications to allow students to understand how railway engineering and operational principles are used in the real world. The module takes advantage of the University of Southampton’s substantial experience and expertise in railway research, and will make use of case studies based on recent and ongoing research projects.
