Our Journey So Far

Its been a great year for our course since we started our first batch in April 2017. We got our first batch from different states like Hyderabad, Maharashtra, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and it was really a diverse mix of culture and experience. The 2nd batch had a more diverse PAN India mix. We had freshers on one hand and experienced railway professionals with more than 5 years in the batch. It was quite a challenge keeping pace and level of curriculum to meet the expectations of all yet our railway experts and university faculty stood up well and excelled in providing the best of railway education and exposure possible.

Our academic journey encompassed company visits, rigorous industry focussed training, mentoring from railway experts and hands-on exposure of railway signaling. With the kind support of IRSE INDIA SECTION, our initiative was welcomed in industry and supported at all levels of the railway industry.

Placement Record

In the beginning of 2018, we were celebrating 100% placement of our first batch and companies were welcoming our trained students with confidence. We have more job opportunities than studentscurrently and its still on.

Career Opportunity

Massive Expansion Projects going around the world in railways are creating opportunities for signaling and & Telecommunication Engineers in a big way. According to surveys conducted for rail projects, around 250 new people will be required every day in next five years in signaling telecommunication alone with more than 30 percent of these professionals to be technical level and above. This translates to 5 lac+ jobs for Certified S&T engineers in Railways, Metro rail, Speed rail, Mono rail, Light rail and DFCs.”

Globally Qatar rail, Network Rail (UK) and many countries including Singapore and Middle East countries are expanding rail networks to boost their infrastructure. Metro Rail industry is moving towards modern digital systems and data driven systems. There are 28+ metro rail projects presently running in the country boosting requirement for S & T engineers.

Our initiative aims to ensure Stable Railway Career with Global Job Prospects!

Indian Railways and Delhi Metro apart from recruiting through all India entrance examinations also work with partners (Bombardier, Alstom, Siemens, Thales, L&T and many more) to complete their projects.

In any railway project around 30% manpower requirement is of ‘Railway Signalling and telecommunication Engineers’ which has to be fulfilled by these companies as per Railway norms also. The career opportunities we are talking about are with Top 30 MNC companies and 300 Railway approved companies/contractor companies which require professionals specialised in Railway Signalling and Telecommunications (50+ mega railway projects) across the country.
