The new SGRail Industry Scholarship, centrally awarded and managed by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), may just be your ticket to shaping the future of the rail industry.

As Singapore continues to push the frontiers and leverage emerging technologies to achieve smarter mobility, the transformation of the industry hinges on the next generation of rail professionals.

The SGRail Industry Scholarship, launched in November 2019 as part of the Government’s $100 million push to upskill the industry, aims to attract and retain talent to become future industry leaders.

Successful applicants can expect to gain valuable work experience in the public and private sectors with the rail scholarship.

Diverse career opportunities
Through its structured developmental programme, scholarship holders will get the chance to work on projects in organisations such as LTA, SBS Transit and SMRT Corporation, and deepen their skills in project management, rail planning and development, as well as operations and management of the rail network.

They will also work hand-in-hand with like-minded individuals who are equally passionate about innovations
in engineering and railway fields, and learn from highly-experienced specialists and technical experts in their fields.

There are plenty of job roles in a variety of sectors in the rail industry.

SGRail Industry scholarship holders can enjoy a diverse and dynamic career path with a wide range of specialities to choose from.

They will hone deep rail operations and engineering domain knowledge in areas including Signalling, Rolling Stock, Power, Permanent Way and Systems.

Learn from the best
Having good mentors can make the difference between a good and great career.

In addition to good career development and training opportunities, the SGRail Industry Scholarship also offers excellent mentorship by industry forerunners.

Scholarship holders get to work alongside some of the greatest engineering minds and learn from their wealth of expertise through their rail career.

The sky’s the limit with the scholarship’s comprehensive talent development programme. They also enjoy unrivalled exposure to a diverse variety of rail careers where they can learn, grow and play a role in shaping
the best rail practices.

Through different professional career tracks and development programmes, they will get to expand their leadership skills, develop specialised rail expertise and grow their capabilities.

Beyond Singapore, scholarship holders will also gain valuable exposure and expertise in the dynamic rail industry with internships in multinational corporations.

These fast-track career development opportunities position them at the frontier to gain different perspectives and deepen their experience as a top rail professional.
