Study System & Program Applied back to Top

Students wishing to study Energy and Environmental issues can choose either the "JGSEE Program" offered at JGSEE and its consortium or the "Consortium program" offered at JGSEE's partner universities

2.1 JGSEE Program
1. JGSEE Program offers research-based and professional-oriented program. Student can choose to conduct his/her research either at JGSEE or at any coonsortium universities. In any case student are required to register and study his/her first semester course work at JGSEE. JGSEE Program1. under supervision from JGSEE's advisor Students are to study graduate programs offered by JGSEE. Course work and research activities will be conducted at JGSEE under supervision of JGSEE's faculties.

2. JGSEE Program under supervision from a partner university's advisor Students are required to study their first semester coursework at JGSEE (in some programs, the second semester is also covered).After completion of coursework, students will move to conduct their research at their advisor's university.

Research-based programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science (MSc), Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in the program of:

-Energy Technology.
-Environmental Technology.

Professional-oriented programs leading to the degrees of Master of Engineering (MEng) or Master of Science (MSc) in the program of:

- Energy Technology and Management
- Environmental Technology and Management.

In research based programs, it is important that students consult their potential advisor at JGSEE or affiliated staff at any consortium universities and identify a research topic relevant to JGSEE's research group themes. For those who are interested but have no particular idea of research field, please contact JGSEE's academic section for more information and advice.

The degrees of Doctor of philosophy and Master of philosophy require a brief explanation of research concept and must include a proposal not exceeding 3 pages in length and attached with the application form. Please be informed that this document is to be written in consultation with potential advisor and is very important for acceptance to the research-based program.

Students entering a Master of Science on Energy or Environmental Technology are also requested to seek and consult an appropriate advisor concerning their topic of interest which is to be also in line with JGSEE research group themes.

JGSEE offers Master of Engineering/Science on Energy/Environmental Technology and Management plan A for those who would like to gain broad knowledge via coursework study. Students who choose professional oriented program (Master of Engineering /Master of Science on Energy/Environmental Technology and Management plan B) are required to participate to a 6 credits internship in a relevant industry and conduct a small research work in accordance with the industry concerned. Evaluation from the concerned industry and advisor(s) are to be done in accordance with the credit earned both in term of quality and quantity.

Students who choose to enter the JGSEE Program will be graduated under the King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi.
