Here at Queensland Rail, our Engineers play an integral role to ensure the on time running and safe operation of our fleet.  Using their strong technical abilities and industry knowledge there are several elements that our Engineers need to be across to ensure we are operating a modern, world class rail network.

Mechanical Engineers

Mechanical Engineers at Queensland Rail use their mechanical engineering expertise in design, maintenance and acquisition of new and existing rollingstock. In this team, you will work in exciting fields such as vehicle dynamic tests to provide mechanical solutions and integrate new railway technologies. Our Engineers also manage multi-million dollar rollingstock acquisition projects.

Electrical Engineers

No rail transport company can operate without electricity and machinery. At Queensland Rail, our Electrical Engineers ensure the maintenance of our equipment, with the main areas including rollingstock Electrical Engineers, power and overhead traction, signalling, operational systems and telecommunications.

Power and Overhead Traction Engineers design and monitor the overhead electrical services delivering power to our City network and regional trains.

Signalling plays a critical role to ensure that our train services run safely and efficiently on our network.  Operational Systems Engineers work with leading software technologies to design train management systems and support systems for our signalling network.

Our telecommunications network spans our rail network, more than 7,000 kilometres in total.  Telecommunications Engineers design systems that monitor and control signalling and train management systems to internal communication systems as well as plan, install, test and commission new communications infrastructure.

Other engineering disciplines we recruit for at Queensland Rail include:

  • Civil Engineers/Structural Engineers
  • Project Engineers
  • Site Engineers
  • Track & Civil Designers/Drafters
