University Days
August 13-14, 2024

Explore a career in railroad technology

Engineering Students, Researchers, and Faculty

North America’s railroad industry always strives for the highest standards in safety, efficiency, reliability, and network resiliency – and the next generation of engineers and scientists will continue that quest. MxV Rail’s University Days are free to university students and staff who are interested in exploring opportunities in railroad science.

This 1.5-day event allows participants to learn how MxV Rail’s work shapes the future of rail. The event includes one-on-one interaction with MxV Rail researchers, student presentations, and a tour of our facilities including the new Facility for Accelerated Service Testing (FAST°).

Welcoming the Next Generation of Talent

The MxV Rail team is excited to welcome students and faculty to the annual University Days event.  Our team will introduce you to our current research efforts in the areas of track and structures to rolling stock and inspection systems.  You will also hear directly from our sponsored University teams about the exciting technologies they are bringing to the rail industry.  The highlight of the event is a field trip to see MxV Rail’s laboratories and test installations on our specialized tracks. Throughout the program, we hope to demonstrate how students’ individual talents can contribute to the rail industry and the greater public good.

A warm Pueblo welcome

University days will be held in downtown Pueblo, Colorado at the Pueblo Convention Center. The Convention Center sits alongside the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk of Pueblo, a popular tourist destination and activity hub for the city.
