Learning from Real Problems.

Industrial Cooperation

Dedicated to cooperative education and work integrated learning for furthering an industrial cooperation

In the perspective of creating a network on teaching and learning among organizations, KMUTT has attempted to reinforce the interdisciplinary education of related fields of study. The interdisciplinary curriculum and specialized skill of knowledge are additionally formulated. These will lead to: delivering integrated manpower to society, enhancing the potential of student and personnel; also innovating teaching and learning approach and research work. KMUTT has provided co-operative education and work integrated learning for furthering an industrial cooperation.

KMUTT has aimed at establishing the excellence center of interdisciplinary curriculum of Master program in Printing Technology. The Faculty of Industrial and Education Technology has planned for arranging the practice in co-operative education. They have contacted the industry sectors who are willing to recruit college students in their working groups. A group of qualified students, suited for the requirement of entrepreneur were picked up. The orientation, supervision and seminar for the practitioner were delivered to students. The performance appraisal was included in the process as well.

Apart from teaching and learning integrated with co-operative education approach for undergraduate student, KMUTT has designated learning method for engineering practice school which follows the discipline of Constructionism. The project plan has been willingly cooperated by industry sectors. The entrepreneur have provided their workplace to be an engineering practice site for students to experience and integrate their knowledge to solve the problems in real situation. In the beginning of 1997, KMUTT has initiated the learning management for Chemical Industry, and Pulp and Paper Industry which later was expanded to the Food Industry Cluster. Besides, The Royal Project Foundation has volunteered to provide a practice school in science and technology for students of School of Bioresources and Technology.

Learning procedure through a practice school has been conducted by means of tackling the problems faced in a real situation. Students will be experienced in making a plan, integrating critical thinking and enhancing problem-solving skills creatively. It would also be beneficial for industry sectors to be engaged in a knowledge-based society and most importantly, Thailand can strengthen its potential for global competitiveness in a state of knowledge-based economy.

Presently, there are 4 engineering practice schools. Those are Chemical Engineering Practice School: ChEPS, Food Engineering Practice School: FEPS, Starch Engineering and Process Optimization: SEPO, and Bioinformatics Program: BIFS. Furthermore, KMUTT have launched the integrated practice school in Chemical Engineering : C-ChEPS and in Pulp and Paper: C-Pulp under the Constructionism discipline in order to enforce student to study from project-based learning. They will be educated by learning process and knowledge innovation. They could consult peer or colleague if needed for seeking out the solution.

KMUTT has strongly commenced in establishing the network and alliance with industry sectors, including the collaboration with other government organizations. It is aiming at nothing but reinforcing the University to have higher academic potential and excellent research outcome. It also would be supportive for being internationalized according to the University’s policy.

During the past 3 years, KMUTT gained an income from academic services more than that of the fiscal year 2006 at around 24%. It is clearly shown that our academic services have high performance consistently. The renowned samples of our outstanding academic services are ASEAN Rail System Development Institute, ARSDI and academic cooperative project joint with Ministry of Transport and State Railway of Thailand. Another one is academic cooperative project joint with Association of King Prajadhipok’s Institute for developing the integrated management of government sectors which is beneficial to every organization and its workforces.
