Event description

Description

What does it take to design a new railway? In this session with Jennifer Henderson, students will explore the different factors which must be taken into consideration when designing a new railway. This includes the technical stuff, the maths and physics. But any successful Civil Engineering scheme also needs to include consideration of our environment, political pressures, understanding of cost and benefit and be completed in co-operation with local stakeholders.

Please Note: This workshop is strictly for 16–18 year-olds and will include a 45 minute unsupervised lunch break. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens, pencils and a USB drive if they wish to take their work home.

This workshop is based on an Ri Engineering Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on summerschools@ri.ac.uk with any questions.

Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
