A software engineer develops the computer systems that control rail networks and machinery. They automate control systems, and implement advanced machine learning algorithms to make rail safer and more efficient.
Process engineers support the manufacturing of new trains and other rail infrastructure. They design manufacturing methods, create product specifications, check product quality, and improve manufacturing efficiency.
Project engineers plan and manage construction projects. They are part of teams that build rail track, bridges and tunnels, passenger stations, and more.
Signalling engineers design, construct, test and commission the systems that control trains and allow drivers to navigate the rail network safely. They combine mechanical infrastructure with electronics and software to create an integrated signalling system.
A maintenance engineer leads and manages scheduled maintenance on rail infrastructure and equipment. They keep our railways safe and efficient, and make sure our rail assets last longer.
Mechanical engineers create and maintain mechanical systems. They design trains, equipment, and track infrastructure.
Mechatronics engineers create automated machines. They design and build systems that integrate mechanical and electronic components with advanced software. These systems control trains and rail networks.
Design engineers use computer software to design new components, machines, and tools. They’re at the forefront of innovation in the construction of rail infrastructure and equipment.
Digital engineers create and use complex datasets to generate digital models and simulations. They can write code to build 3D models and virtual environments.
An electrical engineer designs and manages electrical systems. These complex systems are part of every railway line, train, station and freight hub. Electrical engineers work at the leading edge of new technology.
Assurance engineers keep construction and manufacturing projects running smoothly. They make sure projects are safe, comply with standards, and achieve their intended outcomes.
A civil engineer designs and builds infrastructure such as bridges, tunnels, railway track, and stations. Their designs make rail networks safer and more reliable. Civil engineers manage the people, equipment, and materials needed to build new assets in a way that’s safe, efficient, and sustainable.
Communications engineers maintain the communication systems that people and computers use to communicate across rail networks. Their role includes telecommunications, networking, and signalling systems which are all essential to keep our railways safe and efficient.
