This is a comprehensive railway operation and design training course for candidates who wish to become professional railway engineers in System Operation and Management with an understanding of railway design and safety. The training course is aimed to provide an in-depth appreciation of the key railway engineering systems being adopted in the modern world covering their fundamental working principles and railway system technologies including signaling, rolling stock, and control & communication. The training course shall also include the topics on green transportation particularly regarding its impacts on the lifecycle costing and asset replacement for railway operation.
What Do Participants Learn?
The different types of rolling stock for different railway operations (High-Speed Rail, Intercity services, Metro system, Light Rail, Monorail)
The key subsystems and components of major E&M Systems for railway including trains, signaling, communications, control and traction power
The concept of the adoption of system assurance, risk management, hazard management and safety management processes to design, implement and operate a modern railway network
The importance of considerations on the environment in designing, implementing and operating a railway network
The principle and application of Lifecycle Costing for railway network that would impact the way the railway is constructed
The approaches to be adopted on Asset Management for a railway network throughout its lifecycle particularly when technologies are advancing at a speed that is beyond imagination
The importance of the involvement of stakeholders in railway operation throughout its whole lifecycle
Who Should Attend?
Engineering or professional qualification at the corporate organization in a railway engineering or equivalent related discipline plus at least one year of working experience in the discipline.
What Will the Learning Experience Include?
Comprehensive pre-program activities include:
Web-based information forms & surveys completed by attendee.
Direct consultation with the attendee about the expectations.
During the training, participants engage in data, activities, and conversations that lead to insight and knowledge.
Participants learn from expert trainers who have both academic and business experiences.
