Signalling Cadets

The Signalling Career Conversation webinar offered a great foundation in the basics of how rail signalling systems work. Presented to a captive audience of 124 university engineering students, it also gave the attendees glimpse of what life as a signalling engineer would be like with stories, insights and ideas from industry professionals.

Working under the Training Tor The Future program and in partnership with Jacobs, Monash Engineering Student Society (MESS), Victoria University and Swinburne Women in STEM club three webinars were run over August 2020.

Rail Signal Engineers are now at the forefront of amazing new technologies that allow greater flexibility for running trains and need some of the brightest tech-heads to operate.

With the decades’ long pipeline of rail and infrastructure work being undertaken in Victoria, the industry needs well-trained and qualified professionals.

This highly specialised and growing field needs fresh talent. Applications are closed for 2021.  Please check back in August 2021 for further information about the 2022 program
