RailExchange project has successfully performed toward the aims to develop sustainable railway education in Thailand via international partnerships and industry collaborations based around stakeholders’ expertise and experience. The activities included getting industry inputs into engineering curricula, developing capacity for engineering educators and promoting knowledge sharing via student projects.
The project has achieved and been able to:
1.) enhance Thai engineering education through knowledge sharing from UK university and the rail industry;
2.) promote the workplace simulation based on industrial case study, and
3.) promote collaborations in rail engineering curricula in Thailand.
