Railway risk and safety management, are both vitally important worldwide, for not only the ongoing operation of existing railways but also for the design and the development of new systems. Much work is being done by companies involved in both mainline and urban transportation systems to improve safety, for the public, their passengers and their workforce. In the last two years alone there have been around 60 railway crashes and incidents reported worldwide. The prevention of the associated loss of life and livelihood are high priorities for all organisations involved.

This programme in Railway Risk and Safety Management (RRSM) is the first of its kind in the UK and is jointly delivered by the Universities of Birmingham and York. You will benefit from the expertise of two leading UK universities and spend around half of your time with the Birmingham Centre for Rail Research and Education (BCRRE) and half at the High Integrity Systems Engineering Group (HISE) in York.

The programme will give you a deep and robust understanding of the approaches to managing safety and risk in transport systems and related projects. The York modules are highly structured around the general topics of risk and safety management, while the Birmingham portion of the programme focuses on railway systems and the application of risk management principles in this sector. Although different transport sectors and modes have their own specific features, this course will give you a thorough education of knowledge which can take you into many areas of engineering and business management.

About the School of Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is the key to many of the issues affecting our lives today. Civil Engineers solve problems, design, build and maintain our living and working spaces. You might design a new stadium, work on a local by-pass or railway line, assess a damaged structure, provide immediate and safe drinking water to a refugee camp, or manage a multi-million pound construction project.
We tackle the problems faced by society today: we aim to develop the knowledge and tools to build the communities of the future. Many of our projects have already had a significant impact on society; the impact of others will be felt by generations to come.
The performance of Civil Engineering in the Research Excellence Framework (REF), the system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions, has shown that the majority of its research was rated as internationally excellent.
We work closely with industry, charities and research councils to encourage innovative thinking which has an impact on our lives. As a result we are proud of our heritage of internationally-recognised, multidisciplinary research in a stimulating research environment.

The Road Management and Engineering programme is designed to equip participants with the skills and knowledge of management procedures for the planning, appraisal, design, construction and maintenance of road networks.

The programme is relevant to conditions found in both developed and developing countries and are suitable for road engineers and civil engineering graduates who want to pursue a career in road management.

This programme in its current form is a natural progression from our previous programmes in highway engineering, management and traffic engineering that have gained an international reputation over the past 25 years. Its purpose is to provide advanced training for engineers aspiring to higher or middle-management positions in either private or public sector road engineering organisations. The course attracts participants from all over the world including practicing engineers who wish to gain knowledge of the state of the art in road management or change career paths as well as recent graduates who want to pursue a career in road management.

The taught part of the programme consists of 6 individually assessed modules of 20 credits each, each run over two intensive weeks. Engineering oriented modules cover the principles of road design, safety, materials, and the structural design of road pavements. Management focused modules complement the range of subjects taught in the engineering oriented modules and include the environment, sustainable transport, road asset management, road financing and economics.

Transport engineering is about efficiently moving people and goods through the use of scientific principles.

Journeys may be made by foot, bicycle, private motorised transport and public transport. The varied means of transport available require infrastructure comprising either of public rights of way or dedicated systems such as railways, which need to be sized, designed, built and maintained.

Taken together, transport and its infrastructure has significant impacts on society and the environment and these impacts need to be estimated.

The MSc Transport Engineering and Planning provides systematic knowledge and skills in the analysis and design of transport systems which are grounded in advanced engineering science, statistical modelling and planning theory and practice.
