    • Abstract:
      Since its initial offering in 2008, the objective of the Railroad Engineering Education Symposium (REES) has been to develop interest among university faculty in railroad transportation engineering, with the goal of facilitating and supporting their interest in adding railroad engineering content to their engineering courses and curricula. In 2012 and 2014, NURail members worked closely with the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance of Way (AREMA) Committee 24 (Education and Training), leading the preparation and presentation of much of the course material. REES 2012 and 2014 were held at the Johnson County Community College (JCCC) in Overland Park, KS.

      Description of Activities

      REES is a two and a half day event that …….Early offerings included only basic railroad information (REES 1), but in 2012 additional material (REES 2) was added to support returning professors in continuing to build their programs. In 2014 a third track (REES 3) was added, primarily focused on building student involvement with developing rail programs. An attempt was made in 2014 to record the REES 1 material for later distribution to universities interested in developing rail content for their curriculums. A general table that summarizes the development of REES content and structure from 2008 to 2014 is presented in Appendix 1, followed by REES 2012 Agenda in Appendix 2, and REES 2014 in Appendix 3. Appendix 4 is the 2013 Joint Rail Conference Paper, Railway Engineering Education Symposium (REES) – Universities and Industry Collaborate to Develop Railway Education.
