The Young Railway Civil Engineers         

The YRCE exists to best serve the needs of younger civil engineers who want to develop in the rail industry. We seek to help Students, Apprentices, Graduates and those members of the profession under 35. Our core vision is to:

►  Aid knowledge sharing, learning and development between members of our association and the railway industry;
►  Promote, and develop attraction toward, railway engineering - with particular focus on younger and less experienced engineers;

►  Attract new members and enhance our influence towards improving our industry.

If you are interested in railway civil engineering and are in education or just starting out on your career, please contact us or come and join one of our events to find out more.
