Siam University (SU), one of the forefront private comprehensive universities in Thailand, has been dedicated to become a “Leading Institution Creating Innovation for Sustainable Future”. It is our commitment to take a responsible role in driving sustainability in both our campus and communities, especially those in South-West Bangkok. Our “Sustainable University, Sustainable District” policy has been participated by “SU family”. The University has carried on our missions to provide quality education to produce graduates with academic excellence, high professional skills and sound ethical principles. We have promoted academic, research, and social engagement with networks and partners from public, private and communities. Our hard work and strong collaborations have given benefit to our missions as one can see that SU is now recognized locally and globally.
We continuously upgrade our institution since our establishment as a first 3-year private engineering school in 1965, to “Siam Technical College” and the present “Siam University”, a full-fledged higher educational institution on September 5, 1986. SU currently provides programs in the fields of science and technology, health science, social science and humanities to more than 9,000 Thai and international student bodies.
