More about Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology, Thammasat University
Thammasat University has been established in 1934, two years after the 1932 Siamese Revolution, in the name “University of Moral and Political Science”, to educate a fledgling democracy at that time on law and political science. Since then, the university played an important role in social movements. In 1992, the university together with its industrial partners founded Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT) to provide research and education in engineering, technology, and management for the country’s development. Its School of Information and Computer Technology hosts one of the country’s largest research groups in knowledge and information science.
