Universal Design


Exploring the vital elements that impact on a railway station design, is at the forefront of student learning. Each session encourages discussion and collaboration on elements such as location, management roles, branding, customer experience, whilst most importantly providing a seamless all-inclusive environment for anyone using public transport. Future thinking, innovation, sustainable power sources and research, are all part of the learning sessions, aiding students to think of our society, as one whole.
