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.
