Vision & Objectives

Nurturing railway vehicle engineers
Training intermediate technicians equipped with theories and skills in line with increasing demand for railway industry personnel

Railway, one of the most competitive transportation methods in the future!

The core area of the railway system is railway machinery, including railway cars. Following the Gyeongbu High Speed Railway, the Honam High Speed Railway being opened, various light railroads have begun to be planned, designed, constructed and operated by local community groups. There will be various opportunities such as the opening of the North-South railway and the TSR in the future.

Educational Objectives

We intend to foster core engineers who will be able to take part in the development of the railway industry with basic personality education, passion, affection, mission, and pride in the railway industry.

Career Introduction and Forecast
