The Joinville Campus’ Railway and Subway Engineering program prepares students for a career in subway and railway project, operation, management and maintenance. More specifically, railway and subway engineering graduates may work in areas such as: railway and subway dynamics; project and maintenance of rolling stock (locomotives, wagons and passenger cars); materials for railway and subway transportation systems; railway and subway communication, signaling and operation systems; permanent way; railway and subway accident prevention and investigation; and management of railway/subway enterprises.

The subway and railway sector has received increased attention in Brazil due to the need for sustainable development. New investments in the expansion of railway lines have ensured the recent growth of the railway industry. Moreover, the concern about urban mobility has demanded investment in new subway lines, surface trains, monorails and high-speed trains. Many companies are installed or being installed in Brazil to promote rolling stock projects and new technologies and solutions for this sector.
