Various governments around the world including the Malaysian government has been investing heavily in railway infrastructure projects such as Kajang & Putrajaya KVMRT Line, Kelana Jaya LRT, Light Rail Transit Line (LRT3), East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), Malaysia-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) projects currently and expected future projects such as MRT-3 and High-Speed Rail (HSR). The government is expected to spend around RM160 billion by 2030. These projects would require a large no. of skilled talents in railway domain. However, according to study done by Technology Depository Agency, there is a huge scarcity of Railway Professionals in Malaysia. As per a study carried out, the industry will require an additional 51,300 workers to support current and upcoming projects by 2021. About 16,000 of these will be required for rolling stock and maintenance. The aim of this talk is to not only acquire the concept of rolling stock but also to attract, nurture and retain top talent and raise awareness about the railway industry, especially about the rolling stock, and ensure that there are sufficient local trained personnel to minimize the human capital cost. The course is a combination of key and interesting information and concept of rolling stock, technological innovations, key features and future trends supported with informative and interesting videos to make learning fun for all the participants.
