This programme aims to help Engineers gain an awareness of Railway Systems, Electrical and Mechanical (E&M) concepts and their applications to the Mass rapid Transit (MRT) system. It is designed to cover a range of topics like permanent way, rolling stock, signalling & platform screen door, communication & control, power supply, tunnel ventilation, fire life safety and systems assurance. The intent is to help participants gain a broader understanding of railway’s business, to give an overview and some basic engineering knowledge on the different railway systems and on how they function together to provide an efficient and reliable MRT system.
