Department Overview

The Department of Railway Vehicle Systems focuses on train vehicles, eco-friendly, low-carbon, transportation system of the 21st century. Railways are becoming more important as a means of transportation to enable humans to make new choices amidst global warming. Countries around the world are speeding up the railway industry in the wake of the Green Economy wave, and rail cars are at the center of the rail industry. With the introduction of new concepts and technologies such as light railroads, as well as the accelerated high-speed trains, the demand for railway engineers is increasing. The Department of Railway Vehicle Systems has established 'Rail Safety Act, Emergency Measures for Railroad Operation, General Theory for Train Operation' as part of the training program for 'Woosong Railway Department'. We foster the next generation of experts in the Korean railway field who will advance into the world along with the Korea Train Express, which has developed independently by domestic technology (the fourth in the world).
