Power


Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship: High Speed Rail and Infrastructure Higher Technician


Enquiries and applications for September 2018 enrolment are now live.

Designing and building a railway is one thing – making a train go somewhere is quite another. By specialising in ‘power’ you’ll learn all about the systems and technologies used to get people on the move and make the railway line work as it should.

This specialism combines elements of electronic and mechanical engineering and will also teach you about designing, installing and managing both the equipment and the energy required to power a high speed rail network.

You’ll need to be able to assess and interpret different theories and both paper-based and digital designs and schematics. Ultimately, you’ll be in demand as one of the key parts of a railway’s operation.
