King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang
King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang is a research and educational institution in Thailand. It is in the city of It is 30 km east of the center of Bangkok in Lat Krabang District, Bangkok and has seven faculties: engineering, agricultural technology, industrial education, agricultural industry, information technology, liberal arts. KMITL was founded in 1960 in Nonthaburi province as a telecommunications training center under the technical support of the Japanese government. After moving to a new location at Lat Krabang near Suvarnabhumi Airport, the campus became King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. Engineering began at KMITL in 1960 with a course on telecommunications engineering. Since a technical cooperation agreement was reached between the Japanese and Thai governments in 1960 to establish a telecommunications training center in Thailand, Japan has continued the cooperation over the course of 40 years; the telecommunications training center became a three-year specialty college in 1964, in 1971 joined two other colleges and rose to the ranks of an institute of technology.
Part of the school moved to the Ladkrabang campus, architecture, industrial education/science, agricultural technology departments were established. On the Japanese side, Tokai University, Tokyo Institute of Technology and University of Electro-Communications concluded academic exchange agreements with the school and assisted with such things as the expansion of the university, human resource development and research promotion as part of second phase and third phase “Project-type Technical Cooperation” projects. A Japanese corporation funded scholarship system was established, as well as practical factory-based training, a construction scholarship system, etc. Thus, actual cooperation activities involving linkages with industry as well as things like the start of an invitation program to the Institute for Posts and Telecommunications Policy and a human resource exchange with a public institution were promoted. In 1982 KMITL launched the nation's first doctoral degree in electrical engineering and awarded a doctorate in electrical engineering to Dr. Chom Kimpan, who earned the first Doctor of Engineering granted by a Thai university.
Through the “Partners Project”, using a satellite launched by Japan, there were joint experiments in applied technology (areas such as distance medicine, distance education, computer networking, satellite broadcast, joint development of a human resource training system using distance education, as well as the implementation of a continuation project called the “Post-Partners Project”. Besides this, as using the developed skills and facilities for the benefit of other developing countries, JICA has been active in supporting KMITL in organizing “third-country training” in information technology, dispatched KMITL professors to the engineering department of National University of Laos and supported KMITL’s acceptance of research students from universities in Laos. More KMITL has partnered with Thailand Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, a joint effort among Tokyo Institute of Technology, Thailand National Science and Technology Development Agency, KMITL and SIIT to offer international master's degree in Automotive Engineering.
From its inception, KMITL has grown to include affiliated research centers. At present, KMITL has been recognized as one of the technology universities in Thailand; this could be because of Japan's ongoing assistance. In the future, one can expect continued development through KMITL’s participation in the Southeast Asia Engineering Education Network and strengthening of links with other higher education institutions. In 2017, Carnegie Mellon University set up a joint institute with KMITL with the support of the Office of the Higher Education Commission; this was first opened for student admissions in the 2018 academic year.
