India’s first railway university Inaugurated in Vadodara

PM Narendra Modi-led NDA government has inaugurated India’s first railway university, National Rail and Transport University (NRTU), in Gujarat’s Vadodara. The varsity will be teaching two graduate-level courses, namely B.Sc in Transportation Technology and BBA in Transportation Management.

The university plans to add five more post-graduate-level courses from next year. These courses are (Master of Technology) Transportation and Systems Design, (Master of Technology) Transport Systems Engineering, (Master of Science) Transport Technology and Policy, (Master of Science) Transport Economics and (Master of Business Administration) Transportation Management.

NRTU will function from the Pratap Vilas Palace of the erstwhile Gaekwad state which also houses National Academy of Indian Railways. The Ministry of Railways has identified a 100-acre plot in Vadodara for setting up the new university.

103 students have been shortlisted for the first batch. These students were given 50% scholarship on the annual course fee which is Rs 75,000.

Ashwani Lohani, Chairman of the Railway Board, has been appointed as the Chancellor of the university.
