There are steadily increasing needs for and demands on transport. A smoothly functioning infrastructure is vital to the development of a sustainable society. In the railway sector there is an ongoing, mutual investment in a unified European rail network. To advance developments, there is a need for highly qualified railway engineers capable of combining engineering with sustainable development.
The programme in Civil Engineering specialising in Railway Design aims to provide graduates who can:
- participate in the development of railways, from the formulation of ideas,
drawings, planning, production planning and production, to operation and
- apply their skills in many environmental, aesthetic, ethical, financial and social
- bridge the gap between electrotechnology, economics, urban planning and
This programme is unique in northern Europe, and is characterised by close collaboration with The National Swedish Rail Administration and a multidisciplinary engineering approach, which together mean that graduates are ready to work as civil engineers.
A workplace course, projects and mentors from industry are other important components of the programme.
