Address:Dnepropetrovsk National University of Railway Transport named after Academician V. Lazaryan, Lazaryana str., 2, 49010 Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine

Structurally, the University consists of 10 faculties that fully meet the demand in qualified personnel from all the branches of railway transport. The academic staff of the University   includes   450   teachers, 75 percent among them hold academic degrees. Teaching is realized by 63 Full Doctors, more than 350 Ph.D., 18 Members of branch academies, 85 Laureates of State and special prizes, and many Honorary scientists and workers in various branches of economy.

The training of professional researchers and lecturers is realized at the Doctorate Courses (6 specialties) and the Post-Graduate Courses (17 specialties). The applicants for the degree defend their PhD and Doctor’s dissertations in 2 Academic Councils functioning in the University.

The very important goal of the University is the integration into the world educational and scientific community. The University carries out both training and research activities. University has 6 leading research department – Test Centre, Research and Development Establishment of rolling stock, track and constructions, Institute of innovation management and intellectual property, Project Design and Technological Bureau for design and modernization of rolling stock, track and structures, Specialized Design and Technological Bureau “Microprocessor systems of control and safety”, Specialized Design and Technological Bureau of railway transport „Infratransproekt-DIIT“ and 22 branch scientific research laboratories.

The University actively cooperates with foreign companies operating on the transport market. Under this framework a wide range of scientific investigations on design of transport facilities, equipment and training technologies have been carried out for Russia, Kazakhstan, Poland, Iran, Latvia, Lithuania, Czech Republic, China.
