Certificate of Advanced Studies SUPSI in Advanced Transportation Technologies

Attendees are going to study transportation engineering in a wide context with focus on rolling stock and railways systems. Being railways engineering the focus of this module, students will learn the most important concepts of vehicle design, traction, and control. They will be able to understand and manage technical information and understand how a vehicle is conceived, produced, tested, and put into operation. Furthermore, participants will be prepared on maintenance concepts and how important is safety.

Project work:
1. Review of an actual vehicle towards engineering, maintenance, and safety
2. Create an innovative concept for a railway vehicle
3. Analyze the actual and future alternatives to a railway vehicle
