The Rail Transportation and Engineering Center (RailTEC) in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Illinois of Urbana-Champaign hosts the Railway Engineering Short Course. This course is taught over a week time frame on the University of Illinois Urbana campus. Key topics include:

  • Track systems and infrastructure components
  • Track structural analysis and design
  • Locomotives, rolling stock, and train performance
  • Rail project design and construction

The course will engage attendees in interactive lectures, relevant case studies, small group discussions and site visit and lab tour to learn about the practical aspects and science behind railway engineering and transportation concepts.
