Railway engineering is a versatile subject that acquaints students systematically to the whole gamut of activities that take place in railways, starting from planning, design, and construction to operation and maintenance. Therefore, it is quite natural that the subject encompasses a wide range of engineering disciplines including civil, computer science, electrical, mechanical, and production engineering. Indian Railways has long been regarded as instrumental in India’s economic development. However, it is currently passing through a difficult phase where the challenges are many. In general, despite being the most energy-efficient as well as an eco-friendly mode of transport, the share of the Railways in total traffic carried has gone down drastically. In addition, there is a serious resource crunch that is pulling Indian Railways down. To face this challenge head-on, the Railways has plans to boost its traffic output by expanding the existing network. Further, modernizing the existing infrastructure, improving the passenger facilities, and most important of all, making rail travel safe and comfortable are seen as the long-term solutions to attract more passengers.
