Fellow (FIRSE)

Fellow (FIRSE)

The grade of Fellow (FIRSE) is available to those who who are Members (MIRSE) or meet the requirements for the grade of Member (MIRSE) and who can also demonstrate at least 5 years 'Superior Responsibility'.

A position of ‘Superior Responsibility’ is one held by someone who dictates business and/or technical policy and who has previously been in both ‘Responsible’ and ‘Senior Responsible’ positions in the railway signalling or railway telecommunications engineering field (or possibly in another engineering discipline). Such a person will usually be widely recognised as ‘eminent’ within the profession. They may be either: • a senior manager in a railway signalling or telecommunications business AND/OR • recognised as an industry-wide expert in a particular field of railway signalling or telecommunications engineering. A person with ‘Superior Responsibility’ is expected to exhibit leadership, vision and strategy within the profession by advancing the science of railway signalling and telecommunications, promoting the professional development of individuals and furthering the objectives of the Institution.
