In order to achieve an environmentally friendly transportation of the next generation, a sophisticated automobile has to be developed and widely used throughout the entire world.

King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) and King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi, under collaboration with the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech), Japan, jointly offer a Master's degree program in Automotive Engineering (AE) to produce such highly qualified engineers.

All automotive industries require trained engineers who have global perspective, international exposure and knowledge of diverse topics. Taking the requirements of automotive industries in mind and considering the expansion that is taking place, the Master of Engineering Program in Automotive Engineering has been developed to create industry-ready engineers who have essential required qualities and more advanced concepts. In the first year, Automotive Engineering courses which are lectured mostly by academic staffs from Tokyo Tech, consist of wide ranging engineering aspects from fundamentals of automotive engineering, such as electric controls, aerodynamics, combustion and production, to practice of automotive design. In the second year, students commence their research projects which are supervised by NSTDA researchers and academic staffs from Thai host university (KMITL or KMUTT) and Tokyo Tech. It is a unique opportunity for Thai students (and students from abroad) to establish an international career and profit from the outsourcing wave that is benefiting all sectors of the economy. 

Master of Engineering Program in Information and Communication Technology for Embedded Systems (ICTES)

In today's world, embedded systems are everywhere -- homes, offices, cars, factories, hospitals, plans and consumer electronics. Those key technologies are to bring us a true ubiquitous society. Their huge numbers and new complexity call for a new design approach based on understanding of system design on computational platforms, one that emphasizes algorithm design, platform design, hardware/software tradeoffs and real time design rather than low-level assembly-language programming and RTL or logic design.

Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT) and Kasetsart University (KU), under collaboration with the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) , Japan, jointly offer a Master's degree program in Information and Communication Technology for Embedded Systems (ICTES) to produce such qualified engineers. An embedded systems designer needs to be a multidisciplinary engineer with software programming skills and a broad background in electronic engineering. They must know how to implement procedures to control the target system effectively. In addition to that, the important element in an embedded systems engineers career is the ability to manage projects of various complexities. The 1st year study of TAIST, ICTES program has launched in such a best environment that the advanced academic education is provided by either intensive lectures or distance learning leaded by a group of novel professors in Tokyo Tech, supported by Thailand SIIT and KU professors. (Please refer a subject list of the course study) In addition, the practical research on ICTES has been performed as a project of National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), NSTDA, advised by Tokyo Tech and Thai University Professors and NECTEC researchers.

Master of Engineering Program in Sustainable Energy and Resources Engineering (SERE) 

PROF.HIDETOSHI SEKIGUCHI
TOKYO TECH, PROGRAM CHAIR

Environmental problems, both at regional and global levels, are mostly caused by infinite demands for better living. The effects of energy and environmental problems not only exist at the moment, but are also passed to the next generations. To overcome the present problems and be protective ofthe future, engineers and researchers, who are creative and ethical, with a solid background of advanced knowledges on sustainable energy, material, resources and environment, are required, to solve many technological issues.
