Electric Traction Systems (ETS)
Professional Development Course
5 - 8 November 2012 | The Strand Palace Hotel, London, UK
About the course
This course is targeted primarily at an audience of engineers entering the railway traction industry. It will be highly relevant to graduate engineers seeking professional development as well as more senior engineers who have been working in other railway disciplines and are moving into railway traction.
The last 30 years has seen a significant development in railway traction, with the debate on energy and emissions in transport now high on the political agenda there are key challenges ahead for railway traction engineers, providing many exciting opportunities.
The course is made up of a four day tutorial presented by expert lecturers and practitioners who have worked on some of the world’s most challenging rail projects.
The ETS course is designed to
- Provide continued development for the engineering professionals working in the railway industry
- Ensure that attendees gain key knowledge in electric traction systems from the fundamentals to in-depth design across a diverse range of topics
- Connect attendees with an international programme of speakers who are experts in this field
- Facilitate a closer look at the operation of a rail depot on one of the two technical visits offered
Each day, the course programme will cover a key aspect of Electric Traction Systems, giving you a complete guide to this vital aspect of railway engineering.
