The areas of study in electrical engineering are quite diverse. The curriculum is therefore developed to provide fundamental knowledge in several major study areas so that students will be well-prepared for work in the highly competitive and fast-moving electrical engineering professions.
The compulsory courses are designed to provide students a broad understanding of the principles, illustrated by current applications, in electrical engineering. The compulsory courses include four laboratory courses, providing hands-on learning of electric circuits, digital circuits, electronics, and feedback control. They also include two project design courses emphasizing the applications of the principles under the framework of the CDIO (conceiving, designing, implementing, and operating) process.
By the end of the first semester of their third year, students complete the study of most compulsory courses. The students then choose to study in one of the two options: communication engineering or power engineering. Each option includes one laboratory course and six lecture courses covering several important areas in the corresponding options. Furthermore, through technical elective courses, students can further extend their knowledge with courses from another option and/or explore topics in other areas such as electronics or mechatronics.
In the last semester, students can choose from three main tracks: academic exchange programs abroad, extended training programs with leading local companies, or senior projects with SIIT advisors. The last two tracks provide a project-based learning opportunity, in which students must integrate and apply the knowledge they have acquired throughout their study in the program.

Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology
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)
