On September 9 – 20, 2019 the First CRENG training course was held at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany,

From the State Technical University “PDTU” participated in the trainings Halyna Burlakova – PhD, Head of the Department of Automobile Transport, Hanna Maslak – PhD, Head of the Department of Transport Technologies of Enterprises and Valeriia Kolosok- Head of the Department of the Transport management and logistics.

The program of the visit included the training courses given below on the development of innovative curricular for the purpose of their further adaptation and implementation into the educational process at the PSTU:

  • New technologies and big data for innovations in crisis and risk management + IT Security;
  • Informational-Analytic and Diagnostics for Sociotechnical System;
  • New challenges for crisis and risk management in logistics systems;
  • Humanitarian logistics and transport services in disasters conditions.

As a result of the trainings, PSTU teachers will start to develop educational and methodological materials for the implementation of innovative curricular into the educational process at “PSTU” for Bachelor’s and Master’s degree according the requirements of “CRENG” project.

In the framework of First training course CRENG participants visited Siemens AG

Siemens Mobility provided participants with answers to questions like: Will cities be able to solve the problems caused by increasing road traffic? Can public transportation help them avoid total gridlock? How can railway operators increase the efficiency and safety of their systems? How can rail and road traffic be integrated? How can logistics supply chains be further optimized as freight volumes continue to increase steadily? Because modern, interconnected and IT-based mobility is the core competency of its four business units: Mobility Management, Turnkey Projects & Electrification, Rolling Stock and Customer Services. They have the know-how to make road traffic flow more smoothly and quickly, make trains more environmentally friendly and efficient, make train schedules and freight shipments more reliable.

The portfolio of study visits included:

  • the full range of vehicles for rail traffic: Regional, as well as intercity and high speed trains, metro cars, streetcars and light rail, passenger coaches, driverless vehicles and locomotives;
  • signal and control technology for rail-based passenger and freight traffic;
  • electrification solutions for rail and road traffic;
  • maintenance and service of vehicles and infrastructure;
  • road traffic control and information systems, parking space management as well as electronic payment and toll systems for urban and interurban traffic;
  • consulting, planning, financing, construction and operation of turnkey mobility systems;
  • integrated mobility solutions for intermodal networking of different traffic systems

Harzquerbahn travelling

During the training course participants had an opportunity to visit The Harz Railway or TransHarz Railway (Harzquerbahn), one of the world’s last great steam adventures, with 25 steam locomotives. On 140.4 km, 1,000 mm gauge network, experience the steam locomotives in action every day. Experience this network – made up of the Harzquerbahn, Selketalbahn and Brockenbahn – offered to CRENG participants many superlatives in the very heart of Germany- discoved nature and culture on a trip on steam trains; one of the biggest attractions in the Harz, Germany’s most northerly low mountain range!

The course gave exclusive access to the training in risks engineering for transport services. This intensive course is unique and numbers are limited to give a personal and interactive education experience. The course also provided the participants with exposure to a unique interdisciplinary, international and intercultural learning environment.
