The Rail Transportation and Engineering Center (RailTEC) in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) invites you to attend our RailTEC Short Courses in Summer 2021. Both courses will be hosted virtually in July.

Track Engineering Fundamentals
12-15 July 2021 | Noon-4pm CDT

Railroad Project Design
19-22 July 2021 | Noon-4pm CDT

Who Should Attend

Since the course focuses on three general topic areas (track structure design, track geometry/project design and train resistance/motive power/rolling stock), attendees who have a stronger background in one area can still learn about other aspects of railway engineering and the interrelationships between them. In gaining a greater appreciation for the holistic view of rail transport as a system, attendees can make better engineering decisions in the future. The short course is an excellent networking opportunity to meet others engaged in various facets of the rail industry.
