Since the empire era, transportation has been part of regional and urban development which connect people together. This trend continues with increasing impact more than ever in order to cope with 21st century challenges.
Imperial College Rail and Transport Society (ICRTS) appreciates the great works of people in the past as well as looks forward to the bright future of railway and other modes of transportation. ICRTS runs many events looking back at the enriched history of railway through visits to heritage sites around the country. To ensure smooth continuation of railway and transport for the next generations, ICRTS has been maintaining close links with the movers and shakers of the modern railway and transport industry, both operational and engineering sides.
Throughout the year, ICRTS runs inspirational events including plane spotting, talks and lectures from the leaders of the UK transport industry we remain abreast of the keys issues affecting the transport networks we know and love.
As a member of ICRTS, you will be able to visit working depots around the country, test-drive modern trains on simulators, and get hands-on work experience of maintaining a working railway with our regular track-laying weekends to the Welsh Highlands. ICRTS offers exclusive front-line access to the industry, which will be invaluable to anyone thinking of a future career in this field. So, if you want an insight into the vibrant and growing transport industry, or perhaps you have passion for engineering and trains/planes/buses/ships, then ICRTS is for you.
