Chulalongkorn University had offered graduate courses in various disciplines long before the idea of establishing a Graduate School was discussed and accepted at a meeting of the Dean’s Council in December 1956. At that time the graduate programs were the responsibility of the various faculties. After preparatory work by a special committee, the Graduate School opened on an interim basis in 1961. It was established officially by a Royal Decree in July 1962.
The objective of the Graduate Programs in Civil Engineering is to produce qualified personnel who will be ready to take part in the globalized development in various facets of the civil engineering discipline; to serve in academic institutions, governmental agencies, construction industries, and professional societies. The programs aim at contributing to the successful and sustainable development of Thailand and other nations in this region.
