With the rapid growth of the national economy, people's demand for transportation is becoming increasingly strong. The rail transit business is booming in large and medium-sized cities, and the education management of urban rail transit students needs further reform. At the same time, digital information technology is widely used in various fields, and digital management of education has become one of the major development directions of education reform. The study proposes a specific construction path based on the analysis of the necessity of digital management of education for urban rail transportation majors, and then optimizes the K-medoids algorithm in the clustering algorithm and validates its education digital management effect. The outcomes show that the clustering precision of the upgraded K-medoids algorithm in the selected dataset is up to 92.68%, and the running time is all below 5s, with the lowest value being 3.9s; In the digital management of urban rail transit majors in universities, the precision obtained by the algorithm is all maintained at around 95%, and the satisfaction rate is all higher than 90%. The effectiveness of the proposed method has been verified, providing a new method for the management of digital education systems for urban rail transit students. It can better understand the needs and characteristics of students, help improve their learning effectiveness and educational quality, and achieve more targeted allocation of educational resources.
