Manage all technical and operational aspects of railway and metro systems to ensure safety
The various rail technologies and subsystems in use today include technologies in infrastructure, rolling stock and signalling. Beyond making certain that each of these subsystems functions correctly, it is very important to ensure that they are all compatible and operate alongside each other in a safe and reliable manner. Central to this is understanding how different subsystems can affect one another when linked together as a complete system.
We provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to ensure that your various systems function safely and reliably, both on their own and in conjunction with each other. TÜV SÜD is recognised as a railway safety assessor by many railway authorities and national safety authorities. Our team of 300 multidisciplinary rail experts understands the complex interlinking of rail tasks.
