Fast Track Your Career

The technical challenges associated with meeting the growing demand for railway transportation in an efficient and sustainable manner require a considerable number of engineers with education in the field of railways around the world. Rail transportation is also undergoing a technological revolution as cutting-edge innovations such as unmanned aerial vehicles, machine-vision inspection systems and technology-assisted train operations are applied to traditional railway engineering fields that are vital to the ever-changing demands for freight and passenger railroad transportation. These changes represent exciting and rewarding challenges for engineering graduates. A large percentage of rail industry engineering staff are nearing retirement, consequently, there is a strong and growing demand for graduates with education in railway engineering.

The M.Eng. in Railway Engineering program provides the knowledge and skills required to pursue a career with major freight and passenger railroads, transit agencies, consulting firms, rail vehicle manufacturers, railway equipment suppliers, government agencies, and research organizations. When you are ready to start looking for a position in your field, the Office of Engineering Career Services offers resources to help you develop your resume and cover letter, network with top companies, and find positions for your unique skill set.
