More about the event

The Railway Summer Camp is a cooperation project between the Association of Public Transport, railways, industry and universities, which gives young engineers an in-depth insight into the varied railway technology sector while they are still studying.

The initiative aims to increase the visibility of railway technology among students and show them how attractive, sustainable and future-proof the railway industry is, with the aim of attracting specialists for a career in an extremely diverse world of railway technology.

Over the course of four days, students are taught railway knowledge in the form of presentations, field visits, group work and workshops. Students will also be able to exchange ideas with experts during the week and at the exclusive job fair.
