Lernziele: 

To get to know the role of rail-bounded transport, the development of railway and public transport, the planning and decision-making process for infrastructure investment, basic principles of vehicle movements, and railway operation and control. In addition, students can deepen the understanding in practice from the concrete cases.

The student will be acquainted with the basic knowledge of railway infrastructure and vehicles, including also the maintenance of rails, accessories and rolling stocks. They will get to know the manifoldness of construction of railways in developed and developing counties, and will be able to compare different transport systems and their variants. The advantages and the disadvantages of them will be concluded as well.
