About the Faculty
Faculty of Science and Technology
of Thammasat University
The Science and Technology Faculty was established on 1986 as the ninth faculty of Thammasat University, and it was the first faculty established at Rangsit Center, with the university’s policy promoting and supporting education in science and technology. At the time, it became the country’s 18th faculty of science.
At first, the faculty used a dome building (currently known as the dome administration building) as its place of operations, whether in education management or work management or as a teachers’ lounge. Teaching began in five subjects, namely mathematics, statistics, computer science, environmental science and health science. Later on, the faculty expanded teaching subjects successively, while the university formed new faculties such as on engineering and health science. The faculty was responsible for all basic science subjects for all faculties at the Rangsit Center.
Presently, the faculty offers as total of 10 subjects with teachings covering the bachelor, master and doctorate levels across a total of 43 programs. Among these, 22 are bachelor-level courses, while 13 are master-level, and 8 are doctorate-level courses.

So far, over 30 classes of graduates have been produced.
