President’s Welcome

Welcome message from the President of KMUTT

Since its establishment in 1960 as a science and technology college, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi has consistently strived to produce quality graduates, provide excellence in education and research, serve the community and make contributions to society at large. KMUTT is also determined to improve the total quality management of the University, working to continuously benchmark performance and quality of service.
KMUTT is indeed well known for its innovative programs and strong curricula in science, technology and engineering. In addition, we have developed a reputation for outstanding research, skilled and proficient graduates, distinguished faculty members and effective supporting staff. As the first government institute to become an autonomous university in Thailand, we are better equipped to service the needs of our students and to direct research to real industrial and community issues.
Currently, strong emphasis is being placed on knowledge integration, that is, how graduates make use of their acquired knowledge or apply knowledge to practical work situations. The university also provides internship opportunities and global experience for our students through work-integrated learning in the industrial sector and innovative research projects for community benefit. Such activities help to produce well-rounded graduates by not only providing exposure to real life projects, but also providing them with the opportunity to develop their communication and leadership skills.
As one of the nine National Research Universities proclaimed by Office of the Higher Education Commission (OHEC), KMUTT feels that it has a responsibility to society at large, especially rural and remote communities. The University’s educational reach extends well beyond Bangkok and the surrounding areas by creating linkages with these communities and directing research projects that are of direct benefit to them. In addition, KMUTT works hand in hand with industry, capitalizing on the trust and collaboration built up over many years.
Always committed to helping develop a “knowledge-based society”, which creates, shares and uses knowledge in a sustainable manner, KMUTT has to date produced over 60,000 graduates, who have strong concerns for the future development of our society and who will work professionally for that society, based on the morals, ethics and responsibility they have learned as graduates of KMUTT.
Through 50 years of growth and development, KMUTT has continually adapted to our changing world and society. We now stand prepared to meet the challenges of a globalized world, the internationalization of higher education and the exciting prospects presented by the ASEAN Community. As a leading provider of higher education, the University will continue to strive to be the best, in order to produce the best.
