Stadler Rail Valencia S.A.U. It is a leading company in the design and manufacture of railway vehicles. Closely United to the history of the railway and with the endorsement of more than one century of experience in the sector, the company designs locomotives diesel-electric, dual and electric, for the transport of goods and passengers of long distance and also trams, tren-tranvias and meters for a sustainable urban transport.
The Stadler Chair with the Polytechnic University of Valencia has the aim of bringing the techniques and modes of work of a leading company in construction of railway machinery at the University. In this way is intended to facilitate the transition of graduates from the University to industry and help close the gap between industry and University. With this purpose we aim to organize, among others, the following activities:
- Seminars and railway courses.
- Realization of End-degree-projects.
- Bachelor and Master projects.
- TFM in different areas of the railway field: fluid dynamics, structures, dynamic, electrical, control and software, etc.
- Calls for awards of design: tram and tren-tranvias interior, areas for people of reduced mobility, functional areas as racks, handles, etc.
