Topics will cover in-depth analyses about railway infrastructure, line maintenance and control, communications systems, signalling systems, and integrated mobility in urban systems. There will also be workshops and site visits to production facilities. Students enrolling in the course will also have the chance to take up a training course for internships in the participating companies.
The School of Engineering for Integrated Mobility was established in 2017 in a joint effort by the University of Bologna, Alstom, Italian State Railways and a number of other local companies. It allows students to specialise in integrated mobility and prepare them for the workplace. Once they embark on their careers, they will be able to imagine, design and manage transport and ‘smart mobility’, from railway infrastructure to digital tools for transport control.
