The Faculty of Engineering (Chula Engineering), Chulalongkorn University is the oldest established engineering school in Thailand. It was founded in 1913 as a part of the Civil Service College by the royal proclamation of King Vajiravudh (Rama VI), who later developed the institution into a full fledged university and named it Chulalongkorn to commemorate his father. The Faculty is now the largest and best known engineering school in Thailand and offers a full range of research programmes in various engineering fields.
Since late 2014, the community of Chula Systems Engineering (CUSE) has evolved from Regional Centre for Manufacturing Systems Engineering (RCMSE) which was established in the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University in 1996. With the support of the Federation of Thai industries and the British Council, CUSE was the focal point of graduate-level teaching and research in engineering management and manufacturing systems engineering in the South-East Asian region. Since the first cohort in January 1996, CUSE has produced several hundred Master’s degree graduates in its unique dual degree programme with the University of Warwick.
Currently, CUSE offers a postgraduate programme leading to the degree of Master of Engineering in Engineering Management granted by Chulalongkorn University, as well as a degree of Master of Science by the University of Warwick. The programme is based on the successful model at the University of Warwick which is supported by a number of leading local and international organisations. It allows the transfer of leading edge technologies and manufacturing strategies to Thai companies. Academic staff from both Warwick Manufacturing Group and Chulalongkorn University contribute their teaching and working experiences to students in the programme. The Master of Engineering award (CU) and the Master of Science award (WMG) provide truly international credibility.
