Office of Cooperative and Work Integrated Education

Line Group, Facebook สหกิจศึกษา มหาวิทยาลัยสยาม  website:  http://coop.siam.edu

Siam University is among the first batch of universities to adopt cooperative education into practice since 2002 with the goal to ensure that our students will have a direct working experience with our industrial partners both locally and internationally. The Office of Cooperative and Work Integrated Education was set up in accordance with the “Employability” pillar of the University. More than 30 curricular have embedded cooperative education as a mandatory course and we are planning to revise our curriculum to integrate Cooperative and Work Integrated Education (CWIE) in the courses offered.

At present, the students are prepared for the working world through a co-op preparatory course, of which the requirement is at least 30 hours of training according to the pre co-op term, co-op term, and post co-op standards of Thai Association of Cooperative Education (TACE) and Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation (MHESI). The co-op preparatory course is designed to enhance students’ necessary skills corresponding to the 21st Century skills including critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, cross cultural understanding; integrate innovation-based/problem-based/industry-based projects; equip students with innovative consciousness. We also stimulate entrepreneurial culture through University Business Incubator (UBI). The Office of Cooperative and Work Integrated Education is dedicated to connect our university with industrial sector so that our students will be well prepared for the working world.

The Office of Cooperative and Work Integrated Education provides “One Stop Service” to our students, faculty members and industrial partners. We have formed a strong national and international cooperative and work-integrated education networks. Siam University has been an active participant of the World Association for Cooperative and Work Integrated Education (WACE) and follows the guidelines of the Global Cooperative & Work-Integrataed Education Charter. Our international students participated their event in Durban University of Technology, South Africa in 2019 and 2020. Our President, Dr. Pornchai Mongkhonvanit, is the present Vice President of Thai Association of Cooperative Education (TACE) and our CWIE director, Dr. Maruj Limpawattana, was selected as member of the board since 2016. He also works with MHESI to develop CWIE Demand-driven Platform. Moreover, as Chair of Lower Central Thai Cooperative Education Development Network, the university has hosted seminars with MHESI and partners to prepare our members for the CWIE curriculum on September 1 and 29, 2021. We also have hosted successful student competitions in 2020 and 2021.
