The materials provided on these pages provide additional resources for those studying for the IRSE Professional Examination / Advanced Diploma in Railway Control Engineering and Certificate in Railway Control Engineering Fundamentals. These are also useful background reading materials for anyone wishing to extend their knowledge of railway control and communication systems.
The materials on this page have been collated from previously available material for the modules available up to 2020 called 'Safety of Railway Signalling and Communications (Module 1)' and 'Systems, Management and Engineering (Module 7)'. These modules are being merged into the new 'Railway Safety and Systems Engineering (Module B)' (available from 2021) and also are covered, although not in as much depth, in the new 'Certificate in Railway Control Engineering Fundamentals / Fundamentals of Railway Control Engineering (Module A)' (available from 2020).
IRSE members and non-members can download support materials from the document library below.
