Railway Safety and Control Systems MSc/PGDip/PGCert
University of Birmingham (UK) and University of York (UK) jointly offer
an MSc / Diploma / Certificate in Railway Safety and Control Systems, starting
in September each year.
three pathways of this programme focus on risk and safety systems design; risk
and safety systems operation; and communication and control systems (including
signalling). The last of these is closely aligned with the syllabus IRSE’s professional Examination, and offers a qualification equivalent to taking part or all of the Exam. The course
includes systems engineering and theory and practice in railway control
programme is available to study to PG Certificate, PG Diploma (all taught modules) and the
full MSc, which includes a research project. This project may be taken at the
University of Birmingham, University of York, or in industry, subject to
appropriate academic co-supervision. Distance-learning students attend
Birmingham only for the taught elements. The part-time and distance-learning
modes usually take 2-3 years to complete the full MSc. Individual modules may
be also taken for continuous professional development.

IRSE/IET course in Railway Signalling and Control Systems course
IET/IRSE Railway Signalling and Control Systems (RSCS) is a four day training course
delivered by expert lecturers (many of them IRSE members) who have worked on
railway systems around the world. This course is delivered every two years, and it features a programme which has been
developed by a technical committee.
programme aims to provide attendees with the most up-to-date contemporary
training on signalling and control systems, and is suitable for people who want
to understand the basics of signalling, as well as for those wanting to learn
about current developments. It contains material relevant to both national rail
networks and metros.
This course addresses both signalling and signalling control systems
as well as their associated sub-systems, together with the major system
and sub-system interfaces.
Covering the principal aspects in depth, the course makes an ideal
start for anyone moving into train control engineering, both for
graduate engineers and more experienced engineers looking to add to
their knowledge base.
- Learn about the building blocks of signalling fundamentals, modern systems of today and plans for the future in a structured way
- Take part in a course specifically tailored to those who are new to train control engineering
- Hear from acknowledged experts – the course speakers are all leading professionals in their subjects
- Technical – and social – visit included within the cost of
attendance aimed at enhancing your knowledge of the area – and providing
an informal networking environment
The course will next be offered in June 2020, and more information will be available from the IRSE and IET nearer the time.
