Your job opportunities

In the coming years, there will be a great need for engineers who have knowledge of traffic planning, signaling systems, driving current, trains and tracks – and not least the interplay between these techniques. It can be with public and private companies such as government agencies, infrastructure managers, operators, consultants, contractors and suppliers.


In other words, you are guaranteed an exciting and versatile career if you train as a railway engineer.


Here are some of the key projects that are underway:


  • Modernization and replacement of all signaling systems with new systems, where the signals are in the train’s cab instead of along the railway – the so-called pan-European ERTMS system on the long-distance line and CBTC on the S-line


  • Construction of the Copenhagen Metro Cityring with new tracks, signals and driverless trains


  • The Fehmarn connection to Germany and connection of the railway, which requires expansion of the line from Ringsted to Rødby with new tracks and signals


  • Construction of a new railway between Copenhagen and Ringsted, which requires planning of a new route, new tracks, stations, signals, and traction current systems


  • Expansion of the Northwest Line to double track


  • Electrification of the long-distance railway
