Railway Research at Munich University of Applied Sciences

The railway reseach group is an initiative founded by Prof. Niessner to connect researchers in the field of railway engineering at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. The group develops new technologies for the railway industry with the target to deliver innovative and efficient solutions. In the area of teaching we try to bring railway engineering closer to the students in undergraduate and graduate level. If possible students will be involved in research projects. The group has an interdisciplinary approach with members from different engineering disciplines with long industrial working experience.
