The significant growth in the railway sector, particularly its international component, has prompted constructors and operators to turn to the Grandes Ecoles (École des Ponts ParisTech - ENSIAME - UTC) to create a high-level training program aimed at engineers, project managers or executives working or planning to work in the rail or urban transit sector. Building on its 10 years of experience and its 300 graduates, the program – with its System approach – continues to fulfil the sector’s needs.
With a highly international content and recruitment base, the programme of this Advanced Master - Mastère Spécialisé® is equally divided between academic classes and courses taught by top-level professionals. It delivers an Advanced Masters degree accredited by the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles.
