About Siam University

Siam University (SU), located in South-West Bangkok, is recognized as one of the leading private comprehensive universities in Thailand.  Originally established as the first 3-year private engineering school in 1965, the institution was upgraded to “Siam Technical College” with the authorization to grant degrees in 1973 and became “Siam Technical University”, a full-fledged higher educational institution on September 5, 1986. Three years later, the name was changed to the present “Siam University” to show its diversity in fields of study. Our first move towards internationalization started in 1995 when the international program was established to offer Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in International Business and International Hotel &Tourism, Service Industry Management.
