The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) is the railway industry’s professional organization that, among its other goals, promotes railway engineering education. In response to this challenge, through the auspices of the AREMA Educational Foundation, AREMA’s Education and Training Committee developed the Railway Engineering Education Symposium (REES). REES is intended to foster interest among university faculty in railway engineering with the goal of encouraging and supporting their interest in adding railway engineering content to their current curriculum.
This program could not take place without our invaluable Sponsors.
The REES program was held at the University of Illinois at Chicago, June 15 – 16, 2022. REES will provide practical, hands-on, railway engineering lecture materials through an online portal to registered REES faculty participants, with the goal of encouraging and supporting their interest in adding railway engineering content to their current engineering courses and curricula. REES has been held bi-annually since 2008, with each event attracting over 25 engineering faculty from across the US and Canada.
