Ellen Huang, PE
The development of rail transportation has played a significant role in shaping modern society, economy, and infrastructure. From the Transcontinental Railroad that connected the east and west coasts of the United States in the late 19th century to today's high-speed trains that can travel at speeds over 300 km/h, rail transportation has undergone significant evolution. This course will examine the history, technology, and social impact of rail transportation in the past 150 years. We will explore the technological advancements that have revolutionized rail transportation, including the development of diesel and electric locomotives, signaling systems, and track infrastructure.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
