About King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi

King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) is a technical university in Thailand.

In 1960 the university opened as Thonburi Technology Institute, with just 21 staff. In 1971 it merged with the North Bangkok College of Technology and the College of Communication Technology to become King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi. It was the first university in Thailand to receive full autonomy from the government.

In addition to its teaching and research, the university presents itself as a multidisciplinary think tank, educational park and industrial park.

A range of courses with English instruction is available to students at bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral level.

As a prominent research centre, KMUTT's main areas of research expertise are materials sciences, earth systems sciences, indoor air quality, energy management, bioscience, bioengineering and policy research.

The university also has a respected Faculty of Architecture and Design.

Life on campus is energised by the many clubs run by the student union. There’s the chance to take part in activities like football and cheerleading, or to try out Southeast Asia’s challenging takraw – a form of volleyball in which players can’t use their hands or arms to hit the ball.

Thonburi is a district of Thailand’s capital city, Bangkok, and is located near the city centre, next to the Chao Phraya River. One of Thailand’s most iconic temples, Wat Arun, is located in this district. Thonburi has multiple canals which locals navigate on small boats.
