Master Degree Program in Environmental Engineering

(International Program)

The master degree program in environmental engineering (International Program) in the department of environmental engineering, Kasetsart University, was established under close connection with several internationally recognized academic institutions in Australia, Canada, Japan and United States of America.

Guest professors together with local department staffs provide technical knowledge in various aspects of environmental engineering including water and wastewater treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, air pollution control environmental impact assessment, environmental modeling, etc.

The study period in this program is two years. English is used as the medium of instruction. Lectures are during Saturday and Sunday. The expense in the program is estimated to be around 280,000 Baht (for 2 years) or 70,000 Baht per semester on average.
