LIST OF SPECIALTIES FOR WHICH Faculty “Infrastructure and Rolling Stock of Railways” provides training of higher education degree-seeking students
Field of Study 27 Transport
Specialty (Program Subject Area) 273 Railway transport
Specializing study program – Railway structures and track facilities
Specializing study program “Railway structures and track facilities” offers the graduate a broad perspective and gives the right to choose the future work, which involves the introduction of high-tech computer technologies in the management and operation of the railway infrastructure, the construction of high-speed lines and the rebuilding of existing railways, information monitoring systems for the maintenance of the track and engineering structures. This specializing study program allows the graduate to take full advantage of the gained knowledge in design and research organizations, in public and private firms through computer mathematical modelling in developing and creating new designs, technologies optimization, formulating and solving of research tasks. The railroad is the basis of the country’s rail transport; apparently, because of it, the profession of railroad builder is the most important link that provides the necessary conditions for the railway to fulfil its main task – the transportation of goods and passengers.
Specialists of this specializing study program can realize their potential in the construction industry, in railway transport while designing, constructing, rebuilding and maintaining engineering structures and railway track.
Specializing study program – Carriages and carriage facilities
Students specializing in “Carriages and Carriage Facilities” traditionally are trained as qualified specialists for the car-building and car-repairing undertakings, guided by problems arising during the creation, operation and repair of passenger and freight cars, isothermal rolling stock, refrigerated containers, transport energy-refrigeration systems and air conditioning systems. This is especially relevant at the present time when the construction of transport corridors in Europe-Asia is planned, which will pass through the territory of Ukraine and which will be serviced by the rolling stock of Western European and Asian countries.
Graduates of the specializing study program “Carriages and Carriage Facilities” are invited to work in branches and specialized divisions of the industry, research institutes of railway transport, transport and logistics companies, service centres and subsidiaries of railways. Our graduates are undergoing operational, technological and pre-diploma practical training at the basic undertakings of Ukrzaliznytsia with the further employment and prospects of career growth.
Specializing study program – Locomotives and locomotive facilities
Which transport is most productive today? The most wide-scale? The most accurate? The safest? The most comfortable (at least, can be that)? It’s all – RAILWAY TRANSPORT! And today it becomes even the most ecological (electric locomotives, electric trains) and the most high-speed. The latter becomes clear if one takes into account the total time that a passenger spends on a trip, for example, by an airplane or electric train TGV with a speed of 360 km / h.
Ukrainian railways are undergoing great positive changes today. New modern computerized electric and diesel locomotives, high-speed electric trains, automated control and diagnostic systems, which began to be implemented by Ukrzaliznytsia, require skilled engineering staff. Therefore, the Ukrainian railways for specialists are a guarantee of reliable, stable and high paying work.
Specialty “Railway Transport” according to the specializing study program “Locomotives and locomotive facilities” has a wide range of universal qualifications. A graduate of the specializing study program acquires basic knowledge and practical skills in the organization of service technologies, diagnostics and maintenance of traction rolling stock of railway, power plants, electric machines, and microprocessor-based control systems.
Specializing study program – Technologies of maintenance of engineering structures and premises
The need for training specialists on this specializing study program is due to the fact that over the years of the construction industry in Ukraine, a huge fund of buildings has been created, which requires constant supervision, repair and rebuilding for their safe existence. Students of this specializing study program receive knowledge and practical experience in the field of new technologies for the service and maintenance of residential and industrial buildings and engineering structures and premises of transport.
Professional competencies acquired by the students provide drilling for deep diagnostics of technical condition of building objects, error-free prediction of their durability, maximum detection and use of residual resources, restoration and maintenance of necessary bearing capacity of structures by non-traditional means – without replacement and without significant expenses. Graduates who qualify in this specializing study program can work at enterprises of the construction industry of different forms of ownership, as well as in railway transport undertakings and infrastructure facilities of Ukraine. The construction industry is the most powerful industry in the country, which is developing rapidly, using modern technologies. That is why the specialists of this specializing study program always have high demand from employers.
Field of Study 14 Electrical engineering
