On the 1st of April 2017 begins the first edition of the all-Poland competition Engineer Student Award 2017 for technical university students whose faculty or passion refer to the track infrastructure. The competition is organized by TransComfort, Business Unit of M&MR Trading Polska Sp. z o.o., and co-organized by longtime business partner – Dätwyler Sealing Technologies Deutschland GmbH.
Rail industry and railway infrastructure need to connect both, the sphere of business and science. Hence the project between these two dimensions – Engineer Student Award 2017. TransComfort wants to promote and develop young, conscious people whose pioneer on an international scale solutions will be able to be deployed in Poland.
We have prepared five problems related to rail infrastructure. Participants are expected to design or create a solution for one or more of these problems:
1. “Rail fixing with continuous support without cross-bars”
2. “Sleeper pads – BN918145”
3. “Deflection measurement during passage of a rail-vehicle”
4. “Pavement system for railway crossing with preservation of continuity of track and road pavement”
5. “Track safe for cyclists”
Students can win a monthly internship at Co-Organizer Dätwyler Sealing Technologies Deutschland GmbH, 3000 PLN and an opportunity to continue and develop their own projects. TransComfort will also award two prizes of 1000 PLN each.
