Interested In This Role?
At Arup, we design and deliver groundbreaking icons through our work in infrastructure, building design and specialist technical services. Independent in ownership and spirit, we’re a global firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical experts who use our skills to make a positive difference in the world.
Our infrastructure systems experts combine rail systems and operational knowledge with systems engineering expertise to develop fully integrated railway scheme designs which meet the needs of government, rail operators, the travelling public and others impacted by the railway. These designs may be for a new railway (or other guided transport system), for an extension to an existing system, or an enhancement by the introduction of a new technology.
At the beginning of projects, our specialists work with project sponsors and stakeholders to clearly define the needs to be met by their project and, through feasibility studies and specification of project requirements, make sure this can become a reality. We also help clients to set up project governance, system safety and technical assurance processes that ensure that project risks are reduced through a progressive assurance process that flags issues and enables project changes to be managed.
We support projects throughout the project lifecycle in integration, interface management, requirements management and verification and validation. We also provide specialist Systems Engineering services such as Systems Safety, Performance, Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (PRAM) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
Our services are provided through the whole project lifecycle of:
Our approach to Systems Engineering is based on tailoring best practice systems engineering techniques to the needs of the rail industry which is heavily regulated and combines assets with a long design life such as tunnels, bridge, civil, track and power infrastructure with more rapidly evolving systems such as signalling, train control and passenger information. Traditionally, the Waterfall Approach to Systems Engineering is employed on rail projects. However, where we are supporting clients developing and implementing products for the Digital Railway agile development methods may be used.
Our team has particular expertise in the specification and implementation of European Train Control System (ETCS) level 2 technology which is one of the technologies at the centre of the UK Digital Railway transformation.
Current projects include the following:
