International Undergraduate Program in Electrical Engineering (Communication Engineer)

( Program Structure, Course Plan, Course description )

Communication engineering plays one of the most important roles in transforming Thailand economy into the Fourth industrial revolution, known as “Thailand 4.0”. The communication Engineering Program at Kasetsart University emphasizes not only on teaching advanced information and communication knowledge but also cultivating students’ innovative skills to prepare them for careers in today’s and future telecommunications sector. The program suits students who are enthusiastic about the emerging technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT),  Smart antennas, Biometric systems, Remote sensing, Machine learning, Blockchain, Smart city and much more which allows students to gain deep knowledge for solving technical problems in research and application.

The communication Engineering Program at Kasetsart University is an English program fully-taught in English. In addition, students enrolled in this program obtain practical training from various laboratory courses such as electric circuit and electronic lab, electrical machine, electrical safety, communication architecture and devices, and communication systems and networks. It is important to note that graduates from this program are eligible to apply for the regulated engineering profession license associated with telecommunication engineering issued by the Council of Engineers, Thailand (COE).

To complete the program, students are required to pass a minimum of 142 credits. Students also have 2 options to take part in a 2 month internship in local/abroad or to apply for a 4 month cooperative educational program with industrial sector or institute for advanced research. Also, the exceptional graduate students from this program are specially recommended to pursue the master degree in information and communication technology for embedded systems (International Program).

Curriculum

The Electrical Engineering curriculum of Kasetsart University has been founded since 1972. The curriculum consists of various fields such as power, electronics, control and communications. Under the Thailand 4.0 model, a new economic paradigm is shifted towards innovation driven by upgrading technology, improving creativity, and researching new innovation. The information and communication technologies become important foundations for emerging technologies to transform into a new innovation-driven era.  As a result, they are mainly focused on this program. The total 142 credits are categorized into three group of courses; 30 credits of general-studied courses, 106 credits of specific courses and 6 credits of free-elective courses. The examples of core courses in communication engineering program are

  • Electric Circuit Analysis
  • Computer Programming
  • Digital Circuits and Logic Design
  • Microprocessor/Embedded System Design
  • Digital Communications
  • Data Communications and Networks
  • Mobile Communications/ Satellite Communications
  • Digital Signal Processing/Image Processing
  • Applied Coding
  • Machine Learning for Image Applications
  • Etc.

 

Faculty members

 

One of the strength of this program is our outstanding number of Ph.D. faculty members including 15 associate professors and 18 assistant professors. All involved faculty members are actively working on both practical and theoretical researches. They have an experience on teaching in English. Many of them have been invited as lecturers in the International programs both locally and aboard.

 

Facilities


The Electrical Engineering department is located in two buildings; Electrical engineering main building (building no. 2) and Chuchard Kumpu building (building no. 10). On both buildings, there are many classrooms, laboratories, common rooms and also faculty rooms.
