The Institute has established both faculty member and student exchange programs with a number of universities in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. These programs allow not only faculty members to collaborate with their counterparts in research projects but also students to have an opportunity to take engineering courses at those universities. Additionally, invitations to visit and teach SIIT courses are regularly extended to qualified foreign professors under such programs.
Although it is a unit of Thammasat University, SIIT is financially and administratively separate from the central university system. SIIT’s policies and operations are guided and supervised by the Board of Trustees which consists of representatives from Thammasat University, FTI, and Nippon Keidanren, and scholars appointed by the university. In addition, there are two academic committees – the Academic Rank Assessment Committee (ARAC) and the Academic Review Committee (ARC) – comprising reputable scholars in various fields. ARAC provides recommendations on rank promotions of faculty members. ARC provides guidance and recommendations on other academic and research matters. The Institute, headed by the Director, consists of administrative divisions, a library and information services center, five academic schools, and Department of Common and Graduate Studies (CGS).
