It has already become a tradition that in the beginning of the second quarter the students interested in railways are participating in a one-week International Workshop on Railway Technology (WRT). This annual event was initiated by TU Berlin (Prof. Markus Hecht) and TU Poznan (Prof. Bartosz Firlik). In 2016, TU Delft – Section Railway Engineering (Prof. Valeri Markine) has joined the workshop in Poznan, and already one year later the TU Delft was welcoming the students from Poland and Germany in The Netherlands.
The program of the workshop is always diverse, and includes railway-related technical tours, lectures and work on study cases as well as various social activities. The general philosophy of this annual workshop is that the students will:
learn about railway technology, network with foreign colleagues working on railway related topics, meet industry specialists and experts, make friends and have a good time.
In 2018 the WRT went to Berlin. This report will give you a slight impression on the workshop day activities. If you are interested in the social evening program, you can try to contact one of the workshop participants listed below, although there is a chance that they might not be willing to reveal all the details of that part of the workshop.
Enjoy the reading and if you will decide to join WRT-2019 in Poznan just let us know (see Contact)!
