5th EDITION
UPC School

This postgraduate course can be attended as part of the master's degree Rail System and Electric Drive.

La implantación del Tren de Alta Velocidad (AVE) en nuestro pais y la consolidación de las redes de cercanías han demostrado que el ferrocarril es un sistema de transporte competitivo y eficiente. El futuro de la movilidad pasa por desarrollar este medio de transporte, que presenta ventajas interesantes tanto a nivel medioambiental como a nivel de factores económicos. Este curso quiere convertirse en un referente en todo aquello relativo a la formación superior en los aspectos técnicos del ferrocarril.

Las empresas del sector podrán ver satisfechas las necesidades de formación técnica. De esta manera iniciamos una apuesta estratégica en el transporte de mercancías, ya que existe un proyecto europeo para establecer una autopista ferroviaria en todo el eje mediterráneo.

El curso contará con las aportaciones de los mejores especialistas en sistemas ferroviarios, algunos de ellos directivos de empresas representativas del sector. Todos ellos explicarán sus experiencias a los participantes del curso, ya que uno de sus objetivos es compartir los conocimientos de las compañías punteras. Se trata de ofrecer una formación en consonancia con las necesidades de las organizaciones.
