Rapid Transit Systems

A reliable rail system forms the backbone of public transportation in many parts of the world. As rail technology continues to evolve and improve, it is imperative to keep the rail system and fleet up-to-date, more reliable, easier to maintain, safer and more cost-effective to operate. With rising population level, there is increased pressure on existing public transport infrastructure, driving the need for more skilled rail engineers to maintain and manage these systems. Rail engineers possess technical skills and knowledge in electronics, electrical, mechanical and pneumatic installation to carry out tasks in rolling stock, traction power supply and signalling.
