Frazer-Nash's Karl King to run workshop for High Speed Rail College apprentices

Back to all news

Frazer-Nash signalling expert, Karl King, will be running a workshop for apprentices at the National College for High Speed Rail in Birmingham on Tuesday 17 September.

The workshop, on Command Control Signalling and Systems Engineering within the railway industry, will support the college’s delivery of project-based learning that mirrors the real-world environment of the rail sector.

Karl, who is a member of both the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and the Institution of Rail Signal Engineers (IRSE), has extensive expertise in digital signalling systems. He was recognised by INCOSE with an outstanding service award in 2018, for the work he and colleague Mike Morua had undertaken in arranging the 2018 IRSE/INCOSE Railway Interest Group (RIG) joint conference.

Karl said:

“I’m really looking forward to working with these rail engineers of the future, and to bringing my experience to help demonstrate the necessity of taking a holistic approach to managing the life cycle of a project.

“In the workshop, we’ll be considering, through an example project that mirrors the real-life environment, how key systems engineering elements, such as requirements’ capture, contribute to the development of a digital signalling upgrade programme.”

The High Speed Rail College provides training and work experience to learners aged 18 and above in all aspects of high-speed rail. It has campuses in Birmingham and Doncaster. Further information on the college can be found here.
