All modules in the series MEC6202CT to MEC6209CT of the MSc programme in Railway Systems Engineering are available as Continuous Professional Development (CPD) units.  However, CPD participants are expected to contribute fully to all activities associated with the programme.  All modules apart from MEC6202CT run from Monday 09:00 to Friday 16:00 and are presented at the University of Birmingham.  Module MEC6202CT runs from Friday 09:00 to Friday 16:00.  The modules include a group exercise to review the materials learnt, a class test on Friday to test understanding, assignments (home work) and a 2 hour examination in March or April.
