The purpose of training in the educational program

The purpose of training in the educational program is to acquire in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge, skills, abilities and other competencies sufficient to effectively perform innovative tasks in the field of design, manufacture, operation, maintenance and repair of non-traction rolling stock.
Students master the methods of mathematical modeling for use in modern technologies of car building, repair and maintenance of passenger and freight cars; master modern software packages for modeling high-speed rolling stock; learn to use computer methods of collecting and processing information, which are widely used in wagon building and wagon economy; learn to build systems for management, monitoring and diagnostics of rolling stock.

Addressees of the educational program

The educational program is addressed to applicants who are interested in gaining knowledge in the field of wagon building and wagon economy. The program will be interesting for those who plan to connect their future with the design, manufacture, repair, maintenance and operation of modern passenger and freight cars; for those who want to master one of the most important and classic professions of railway transport – a mechanical engineer in non-traction rolling stock. This is especially relevant at the present time, when the territory of independent Ukraine will be laid links of the three international transport corridors Europe-Asia. Therefore, it is quite clear that these areas will successfully operate passenger and freight high-speed rolling stock in Western European and Asian countries, and will significantly increase the demand for specialists in our field.
Training in the program provides the following amount of knowledge, skills and abilities, the ability to apply knowledge and form judgments:
✔ knowledge of the design, principles of operation, patterns, basic parameters and characteristics, research methods and selection of parameters of the main systems of non-traction rolling stock.
✔ ability to use knowledge and skills in technical diagnostics in the operation and repair of modern non-traction rolling stock, identification and elimination of causes of damage, planning and execution of repair work.
