RISEN Newsletter Discusses Visit

November 2016: Page 2 of the Rail Infrastructure Systems Engineering Network (RISEN) newsletter discusses University of Birmingham Senior Lecturer in Railway and Civil Engineering, Dr. Sakdirat Kaewunruen, visit to RailTEC in August. Dr. Kaewunruen was quoted as saying “From my own experience at UIUC, I am extremely impressed at their willingness to help and their laboratory facilities. I am very sure you will be impressed too.” More information on RailTEC’s expertise and research interests will be highlighted on the RISEN website in coming weeks. RISEN is a four year project that aims to produce the next generation of engineers and scientists needed to meet the challenge of providing sustainable, smart and resilient railway infrastructure systems critical for maintaining European competitiveness through research exchange, joint research supervision, summer courses, international training and workshops, and joint development of innovative inventions.
