Australasia

The Australasian Section is one of the IRSE's largest and most established, and provides services for both Australia and New Zealand. 

The Australian Section was formed in November 1947 and then renamed Australasian Section in April 1989 to include New Zealand

Full details about the Australasia Section can be found on the Australasia Section website, including information about upcoming national and local meetings. As well as holding three national technical meetings every year, each State in Australia also runs its own programme of "local" meetings, to which all are welcome.

 

IRSE Australasian Section Graduate Diploma of Railway Signalling

The IRSE Australasian Section offers a Graduate Diploma of Railway Signalling, facilitating the development of competent railway signalling engineers with a well-rounded knowledge base and relevant work-place skills to complement employers' graduate development progammes.  Graduates will have the knowledge and skills to:

  • develop concept signalling and safety management plans for the safe operation of railways
  • apply railway signal engineering principles to the design of signalling systems
  • develop the signalling layout
  • determine subsystem and application requirements for the signalling system
  • manage the engineering requirements for the signalling system and
  • conduct research into complex issues in railway signalling

For further information about the course, including how to apply for a place, please contact the Australasian Section by emailing graduate.diploma@irse.org.au

For IRSE membership purposes, the IRSE Australasian Section Graduate Diploma of Railway Signalling through Competency Australia is considered to be equivalent to the IRSE exam for membership purposes only, following the "equivalent qualification" box on the membership route flowchart for IRSE Member and Associate Member grades.
