Applications accepted all year round
The University of Birmingham is host to the world-leading Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education, a multi-disciplinary group of staff from the Schools of Civil Engineering, Electronic, Electrical & Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Materials & Metallurgy.
  Future Railway Systems: Mechatronics and Autonomy for Railway Infrastructure
  Prof R Dixon, Dr E Stewart
Applications accepted all year round
Railway infrastructure systems (such as track switches and level crossings) rely upon mechanical technology which has changed very little over the last two centuries.
  Railway Electrification in the Era of Smart Grids
  Dr P Tricoli, Prof C Roberts
Applications accepted all year round
Electrification of the railway allows for faster, greener, more reliable train journeys, improves passenger services and supports economic growth in Britain.
