Rajamangala University of Technology Srivijaya (abbreviated as RMUTSV; Thai: มหาวิทยาลัยเทคโนโลยีราชมงคลศรีวิชัย) was established by the Rajamangala University Act on 18 January 2005.
Rajamangala University of Technology Srivijaya is a group university located in the south of Thailand. The main campus in Songkhla opened as the 'Southern Technic College' in 1954 with only 3 departments, while the Nakhon Si Thammarat and Trang campuses were originally the 'Nakhon Si Thammarat School of Agriculture' and the 'Trang Department of Fisheries and Science' respectively. Following the National Education Act (B.E. 2542 (1999)) which aimed to decentralize management in education institutes, Rajamangala Institute of Technology amended the law before enacting it as the “Rajamangala University of Technology Act,” which HM the King signed on 8 January 2005.
