This program aims to provide a comprehensive and systematic body of knowledge and skills essential for the management of rail operations in a modern rail industry. The main focus of this program will be on technical topics that are specific to the rail industry, and which are not covered in any of the current undergraduate or postgraduate courses. In addition, the on-going development of professional skills such as analysis, problem solving, time management, team work, and communication will be an integral part of the curriculum in the courses.
