Indian Railways Institute of Civil Engineering, Pune
IRICEN had a modest beginning in 1959 when a "Permanent Way Training School" was set up at Pune to fulfil the long-felt need of providing in-house training to freshly recruited civil engineers of Indian Railways.
Over the years, advancement in track and bridge technology led to the upgrading of the institute to cover track, bridges and other modules that a Railway Civil Engineer encounters. The name of the Institute under went changes as follows :
Indian Railways Institute of Advanced Track Technology in 1971.
Indian Railways Institute of Civil Engineering (IRICEN) in 1985.
A number of additional wings housing state-of-the-art laboratories and model rooms have been added over the years giving it the present shape. Today fresh entrants rub shoulders with seasoned and hardened veterans in their common pursuit of development and upgradation of knowledge and skills.
