Project Summary

Industry 4.0 has grasped attentions of industry, academic and research institutes as well as governments all over the world, including in EU countries and Thailand. In line with European 2020, the Thailand government has foreseen also the need for change from production-based economy (Thailand 3.0) to value-based economy (Thailand 4.0) in order for Thai industries to be competitive.

There will be a need for human resource development for a new type of qualified MSc graduates to support Thailand 4.0 as well as Industry 4.0. Therefore, this capacity building project is proposed to enhance the capacity and ability of universities in Thailand for the delivery of a high quality competence-based curriculum for Master’s degree in industrial engineering that supports sustainable smart industry (Industry 4.0), conforms to European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and is applicable to EU partner universities.

The project will be specifically focused on
• Modernization of a curriculum for Master’s degree in industrial engineering that also meet the EU quality standard requirements,
• Development and implement of modern ICT teaching tools and methods for effective student-centered learning of the curriculum,

By achieving the objectives, this project will deliver a modernized MSIE curriculum containing 15 new courses that will be equipped with teaching and learning materials. The course will also be prepared for Online learning. 9 courses will be pilot tested. Laboratory with remote access will be built to support student learning. More importantly, teaching and technical staffs will be trained by experts in the areas from EU partners.

It is expected that the curriculum will be able to address the needs of the industry as well as the nation in term of capacity building for Thailand 4.0. Although the curriculum will be developed to support Thai industries, it, meeting EU standards, can potentially be disseminated to other universities in the region.
