Additionally, our graduates are well-prepared to help the country develop its economic and social potential.

As Thailand has been progressing towards becoming an industrialized country, it has continuously faced hardships due to a shortage of qualified personnel possessing both knowledge and appropriate skills. Realizing that Thailand was in dire need of people with industrial skills, Dr. Narong Mongkhonvanit took on the responsibility of resolving this shortage. In 1965, he established Thailand’s first private vocational institution that could provide students with job-oriented training. He and named the new school: “Siam Institution of Technology.” Over the course of the past several decades, the institution expanded its vision, added a Commercial Department to its curriculum and changed its name to Siam Technology College (Siam Tech). From its inception, Siam Technology College has been regarded as one of the leading vocational institutions in Thailand. Through the growth of its structure as a leading and innovating institute, Siam Technology College has demonstrated a solid commitment to contribute back to Thai society and youth.

The year 2005 marked the 40th year anniversary of the institution, and the time arrived to take yet another new step. Aiming at advancing into a new level of educational development, Siam Technology College (Siam Tech) decided to establish a new institution simply called “Siam Technology College.” Siam Technology College was opened its doors in 2006. The 800+ square meter campus is adjacent to (but distinctly separate from) Siam Technology College (Siam Tech). Initially, the goal of the new college was to provide an additional avenue of study for graduates from Siam Tech; however, Siam Technology College now features a growing list of degree programs for students interested in pursuing business and technology-related degrees. Enshrined in the college’s curriculum are the fundamental principles of equality and continuity, focusing on educating students from all educational backgrounds throughout Thailand and ASEAN.

“The vision of Siam Technology College is to become an integrated partner with Thai business and industry. We are committed to providing both knowledge and practical skills to our students who can then best meet the needs of business and industry. We also aim to enable our students with strong analytical tools to recognize and resolve problems and to have the necessary skill set to deal with societal issues as well,”stated by Mr. Pornphisud Mongkhonvanit, the president of Siam Technology College.

Under the strong leadership of Mr. Pornphisud Mongkhonvanit, the college is not only domestically recognized in the academic community for its excellence in producing qualified graduates in vocational and mechanical areas, but the college is also enjoying a growing international reputation for technological innovations. Currently, the college has 5,000 enrolled students and is in the process of expanding to include additional academic degrees and raise the status to that of a full university, pending approval by the Ministry of Education.
