Railroad & Transport Management

Creating International Railroad Experts with Global Perspectives

Global interest in high-speed train travel has created a growing demand for experts in Railroad Transportation. Ours is the only program in Korea taught completely in English by foreign faculties. Your career starts here!


You’ll learn everything from the basics of road-bed design to the sophisticated aspects of digital signaling, computer-aided design, project planning, global logistics, and more that make high-speed train travel possible. Student interaction with our local partner KORAIL (Korea Railroad Corporation) provides an in-depth understanding of railroad practicalities. If you would like to be at the forefront of railroad, logistics and transport management, then our program is the one for you.

Woosong University has significant experience in railway management and has received accolades of excellence for its performance in training high-speed bullet train operators. Since trains are rapidly becoming the 21st century’s preferred mode of transportation (due to their speed, level of comfort, environmental sustainability, and high passenger capacity), it is essential to offer this expertise to local and international students in the English language.

Job opportunities include positions in private and public railroad administration & management industries worldwide. Opportunities to gain hands-on experience with public and private companies can help you become most capable and knowledgeable among graduates at comparable academic institutions. Students also have the opportunity to participate in overseas internships.
