King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT, มหาวิทยาลัยเทคโนโลยีพระจอมเกล้าธนบุรี) is a leading technology academy in Thailand, focusing on teaching and researching in engineering and technology as well as serving industry. The short famous name of the university is "Bangmod", a local name for the area around the university. KMUTT is located in Thung Khru district, Bangkok and it was officially founded on April 18, 1960. The university has three campuses: two of them in Bangkok (Bang Mod and Bangkhuntian) and the third one in Ratchaburi province.

History[edit]

King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi can trace its origin to the Thonburi Technical College (TTC) which was established on February 4, 1960 by the Department of Vocational Education, Ministry of Education. TTC has as its objective the training of technicians, technical instructors and technologists. By the virtue of the Technology Act, enacted April 21, 1971, three technical institutes are under the Department of Vocational Education: Thonburi Technical Institute (TTI), North Bangkok Technical Institute, and Nonthaburi Telecommunication Institute. They were combined to form one degree-granting institution under the name of King Mongkut's Institute of Technology (KMIT) constituting three campuses. TTC thus became KMIT Thonburi campus. In 1974, KMIT was transferred from the Ministry of Education to the Ministry of University Affairs.

A new Technology Act was enacted February 19, 1986: the three campuses of KMIT became three autonomous institutes, each having the status of university. KMIT Thonburi campus became King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Thonburi (KMITT).

On March 7, 1998 as announced in the Royal Gazette, KMITT became King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi. KMUTT is the first among public universities in Thailand to receive full autonomy. Its administrative system is now patterned after international government-owned universities. The new act gives KMUTT total control over its budget, allows it to own and manage property, and grants authority to set up new faculties and departments as well as introduce new academic programs.

The color of the flower corresponds with the official color of the university. Moreover, it is an auspicious color for students and personnel, as its meaning is "dharma" which naturally protects people who follow in dharma.

Academic programs[edit]

Development of academic programs of KMUTT can be broadly grouped into three periods. These are

  • First decade: The mission of the university was to produce technicians (through three-year programs after Grade 12) and practical engineers (through five-year programs after Grade 12) and technical instructors for technical colleges (through two-year programs after technician diploma) at bachelor degree level.
  • Second decade: The university established a broader academic program in science and technology by offering bachelor degree programs in engineering and multidisciplinary technologies.
  • Third decade: New areas in science, engineering and multidisciplinary technologies are covered at bachelor, master and doctoral degree levels resulting in increased emphasis on research, development and international academic cooperation. Five doctoral programs in engineering and multidisciplinary technology are offered. A Master's program in applied linguistics and bachelor programs in architecture have been initiated. Technical services units were established.
