Transportation System Engineering
The Korea Railroad Research Institute is the only railway research institute in Korea established in 1996 with the aim of improving railway traffic and enhancing the competitiveness of the railway industry through technology development and policy research in the railway sector. KRRI is constantly striving to advance the railway technology through the development of future advanced technology and core technology and to open a new feature of railway transportation. Especially, the Korean high speed train driven by electric locomotive with 350km/h and the K-AGT light rail was successfully developed and commercialized. The development of the 400 km/h high-speed train and the wireless tram as well as the bimodal tram and the unmanned automatic mini-tram for the road-driving have been developed and commercialized. KRRI is playing a pivotal role in the development of railway, public transportation and logistics technology in Korea by standardizing railway logistics and building a railway safety system. In addition, KRRI is making efforts to improve the competitiveness of the railway transportation technology by efficiently utilizing the test lines dedicated to railway and the full scale test facilities located near the Osong station. KRRI is operating the UST-KRRI School, a graduate school to nurture railway transportation professionals who will lead the development of the railway industry. The UST-KRRI School has established a system suitable for railway transportation, enhanced its educational management, and systemized the education system. The UST-KRRI School provides excellent and stable education and research environment, including cutting-edge and full-scale research facilities, excellent faculty, differentiated curriculum, training subsidies, and student welfare system, to cultivate creative global talents with professional knowledge and practical skills.
