Railway Transportation System

The Government of Thailand devotes attention to transportation infrastructure development throughout the country in the urban and intercity levels. Railway development plan aims for significant passenger and freight transport mode shift from road to rail. The government approved Bangkok Metro Rail Master Plan for 12 routes in 10-20 years (2010 – 2029) for 830,470 million baht. The cabinet resolution on 27 April 2010 also approved 5-year infrastructure investment plan (2010 – 2029) of State Railway of Thailand (SRT) for 176,808 million baht. These would lead to various packages of railway development including double track railway network, high speed railway system, and at-grade and underground metro lines. Some projects have already been underway while many others are planned for the near future.

The development of railway sector generates demand on railway operation workforce. It has been estimated that the expansion of Bangkok Metro network project alone will require approximately 3,700 railway operation staff. Among these, 2,000 will be from engineering and technology backgrounds.

Master of Engineering Program in Railway Engineering offers unique curriculum and multidisciplinary research opportunities. The program aims to develop personnel with research capacity as well as personnel who are ready for various sectors of railway businesses.
