The Asian Institute of Technology and Thailand’s King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) on 31 January 2020 unveiled their new KMITL-AIT International Unified Bachelor's-Master's Degree Program at a signing ceremony in Bangkok.
The program provides an accelerated English-language pathway for KMITL students to earn a Bachelor’s degree awarded by KMITL and a Master’s degree awarded by AIT in a minimum of five years. AIT President Dr. Eden Y. Woon signed the agreement with Prof. Suchatvee Suwansawat, acting President of KMITL.
The Bachelor’s degree is a 4-year program, however, undergrads will spend their first seven semesters (3.5 years) at KMITL and complete a Capstone Project at AIT while earning transferable undergraduate credits. Students then have the opportunity to complete an AIT Master’s degree program in one-and-a-half years.
KMITL's challenging undergraduate offerings combine with AIT's emphasis on research and innovation for social impact and international exposure. The program will stress opportunities for students to broaden their experience through exchange programs and entrepreneurship internships related to their chosen fields of study. At AIT, students will be challenged to apply their research to solve real-world problems through field exposures both in Thailand and abroad.
