The undergraduate curriculum in Computer Engineering was first offered in 1988. The Computer Engineering Department received official approval from the ministry to be a university department in February 1997 by a royal decree. The undergraduate curriculum is available both in the regular (Thai) program and the international (English) program. For students who want to continue their studies, the Department offers the Master of Engineering and the Master of Science degrees in Computer Engineering as well as the Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree.
The department aims at producing knowledgeable computer engineers who are able to think, design, and apply knowledge into practice in the areas of software, hardware, and networking which are foundations of technology and communication systems. Computer engineers are expected to have competence in learning new technology on their own in order to be long-life learners. The teaching approach of the department, therefore, emphasizes Problem-Based Learning where the instructors take on the role of advisors. Students are expected to work in teams and present their research in class for peer discussion and evaluation. Thus, the computer engineers from the department are expected to be knowledgeable and yet able to work well with others, making them well-suited for work in any organization. To date, the department has produced over 25 batches of computer engineering graduates.
