The Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE) was formed in 1912, and has its headquarters in London, UK. It, and its members, are active worldwide, with 50% of its membership outside the UK. The Chief Executive is Francis How, and we elect a new President annually in April.
The Institution aims to advance the science and practice of train control and communications engineering within the industry, and to maintain high standards of knowledge and competence within the profession. The overriding purpose in doing this is for the public benefit, to help ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and freight by rail.
IRSE is a licensed body of the UK’s Engineering Council. IRSE members are encouraged to register with the Engineering Council as Chartered Engineers (CEng), Incorporated Engineers (IEng) or Engineering Technicians (Eng Tech).
