Department of Aerospace Engineering
|The Department of Aerospace Engineering, founded in 1993, is the first non-military institute to offer a degree in Aerospace Engineering in Thailand. To date the Department has graduated more than 300 engineers and continues to work on aerospace engineering research and development activities.|
|Established in 1999, the International Double Degree Program (IDDP) is jointly run by Kasetsart University(KU) in Bangkok, Thailand and RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. The program aims to deliver graduates with qualification and skills in both Aerospace Engineering and Business Management. The IDDP has been developed specifically to meet current and future demands of industry.|
|The field of Aerospace Engineering involves the design and analysis of vehicles that travel through the atmosphere (aero) and beyond the atmosphere (space). These include aircrafts, helicopters, missiles, rockets, satellites, and even parachutes and hang gliders, since a thorough understanding of these vehicles involves the study of many different core areas of engineering, aerospace engineers can and do work in such diverse fields as automobile design and engineering, wind-energy generation and conversion, computer programming, atmospheric and oceanic sciences, biosciences, acoustical engineering, and many others. Aerospace engineering offers good employment rate at competitive salaries and opportunities to travel and work overseas.|
Why should I consider combining engineering and business studies? Engineering is essentially about identifying problems and then analyzing and solving them. Practical solutions often involve not just technology, but also financial and social factors. By studying business management engineers learn to deal with a range of complex issues involving the planning, organizing, coordination and direction of the resources of organizations. They will understand how to make business decisions in an environment of economic and social change. As managers, engineers will contribute to planning of their organizations’ activities, manage and develop staff, and resolve problems with well-considered solutions.
Double degree graduates may seek engineering or business management related employment. The skills developed in this program prepare students to work in a wide range of companies whose business is based on technology. Most graduates from this engineering/management double degree program eventually take up middle and senior management roles.
