Chemical engineering (ChE) is a branch of engineering that deals with the chemical and physical processes used to develop and make products such as pharmaceuticals, artificial organs, semiconductors, oil refineries, solar panels, clean water, and biocompatible polymers. Chemical engineers have made major contributions to modern society. With the additional knowledge of biology, chemical engineers are devising new ways for living organisms to perform the molecular transformation and discovering new schemes for the delivery of medicines to specific sites in the body.
The Chemical Engineering Program intends to prepare chemical engineers for life-long achievement through education in the principles of chemical engineering: to encourage the development of communication, teamwork, and leadership skills.
The basic foundation in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and engineering is established in the first two years of the curriculum. A core of required chemical engineering courses is followed by a selection of electives. One group of electives will prepare students to be biochemical engineers, and another group to be chemical process and material engineers.
In addition, ChE students can choose one among three special studies (Senior Project, Foreign Exchange, and Extended Training).
Senior Project is for students who would like to conduct their projects under the supervision of ChE faculty members.
Foreign Exchange is designed for students who would like to participate in a student exchange program with foreign partner universities.
Extended Training is designed for students who would like to participate in a longer training period(for the entire semester)under a co-operative training program with companies or organizations.

If your dream is to study in an international program in Engineering, Technology, or Management, SIIT is the best choice for your study and your future. Whether you plan to continue your graduate study in Thailand or abroad or to work in international organizations, you will be able to achieve your goals with the fully qualified full-time professors at SIIT. For more than 20 years, SIIT has not only produced highly qualified graduates, it also has continuously published the highest number of research papers per faculty member in the country.Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT), Thammasat University, was established in 1992 in cooperation with Thammasat University, the Japan Federation of Economic Organizations (KEIDANREN), and the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI). SIIT’s objectives are to produce highly qualified engineers and technologists, who are competent in advanced technology, proficient in English communication, and able to manage and carry out research in engineering and technology.Our graduates have worked in multinational and global companies both in the private and public sectors. Those who have chosen to pursue further studies have been admitted into leading universities all over the world.
The Agreement of Admission to Major Academic Program
There are 3 fields of studies:
Engineering: Civil Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Industrial Engineering and Logistics Systems.
Computer Engineering and Digital Engineering.
Management: Management Technology and Engineering Management.
All students will apply for the selection of their Major Academic Programs at the end of the first year. Successful admission to a desired major depends on a student’s grade-point average at the end of the first Academic Year, as well as the demand for the chosen program. Priority for selection will be given to students whose selection is within the field of their choice indicated at the time of admission to SIIT.
Estimated Expenses for the Bachelor’s Degree at SIIT
First semester (August-December) and Second semester (January-May)
