Serving the Kingdom for 76 years
Kasetsart University has served as a hub for knowledge and research for the past 7 decades, and proudly continues to do so to this very day. Ranking as one of the top five Universities in Thailand, Kasetsart University has established partnerships with several worldwide leading Tertiary Institutions. In doing so we have placed ourselves in the advantageous position of being able to offer a variety of curricula, both Thai and International, to approximately Seventy thousand students.
In 2002, the International Maritime Institute together with the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Programs, set sail. This was facilitated by the co-operation of the Royal Thai Navy and Kasetsart University. The programs were supervised and administered by the Kasetsart University Faculty of Engineering Sri Racha. Since the inception of the partnership, a vast contribution has been made towards sustainable maritime HR development. The results reflecting on a national, regional and global scale.
In November 2007 our faculty was established as the “International Maritime College”. In 2014 We officially became the ‘Faculty of International Maritime studies’.
As a faculty our objectives are threefold:
To empower students with technical and theoretical knowledge applicable to the field of Marine science and Engineering.
To advocate knowledge and cultural enhancement which in turn will enable the students to contribute to the development of marine transportation and other related industries.
To Facilitate the roll out off highly qualified, self disciplined as well as socially and morally adept under graduates to serve in the fields of ; Naval Architecture, Research, as Mariners, Marine Offshore and Aquaculture Engineering,Port/Fleet and Dockyard Management, as well as Government and Private Sectors
We offer the following undergraduate programs leading to a bachelor degree:
Bachelor of Engineering in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering
On-board Marine Engineering
Masters degree of Engineering in Naval Architecture
Currently being developed.
Bachelor of Science
Nautical Science and Maritime transportation.
IMS is a result driven and goal oriented facultywith a clear understanding of the current national and international demands and stipulations. The undergraduate curricula in naval architecture, marine engineering and nautical science meet and often exceed the expectations of the relevant industries, whilst we concurrently promote applicable research, aim to serve our nation and form collaborations on the domestic and world stage.
We will always endeavor to reassure and contribute to the global maritime academic society as a whole via the exchange of faculty members and students, making research staff available, collaborations with other institutes as well as playing an active part at seminars, conferences and workshops.The faculty is ever present within the local community, lending its academic services to advancing sustainability in the maritime field e.g.marine environment feasibility.
We produce exceptional graduates who are able to enter the maritime labor market nationally and internationally. This is due to our world class teaching systems and placing an emphasis on international standards and management. Our ultimate port of call is to be the preeminent maritime academic,research and technology center in South East Asia, characterized by superlative and efficient research produced by our faculty and students. As well as meeting and surpassing the requirements of the maritime labor market by integrating the knowledge and skills attained from research and academic activities into a student-centered educational system.
