The division of Postharvest Technology (PHT) offers graduate work leading to a Master degree in Agriscience and Technology (Postharvest Technology) and a Doctoral degree in Postharvest Technology with majors in postharvest technology of perishable crops, postharvest technology of cereal grains and grain legumes. With a major, the main areas of specialization are postharvest physiology of fresh produce and cut flowers, postharvest entomology, postharvest pathology and postharvest engineering. The facilities available for graduate training include laboratory of postharvest physiology and biochemistry, laboratory of postharvest enzymes and molecular biology, packinghouse and cooling system unit, postharvest quality control, postharvest handling, postharvest engineering, packaging system for fresh produce, physical properties of agricultural products, postharvest training and research sectors and others.
Graduate work in this division is designed to develop a high order of independent thought, broad knowledge and technical skills. The emphasis in graduate work is placed on research, supplemented by courses and seminars.
The division of Biochemical Technology (BCT) offers graduate program leading to a Master of Science in Biochemical Technology and a Doctor of Philosophy in Biochemical Technology. The students are required to take courses on fundamental biochemical technology and to select a group of electives to gain in depth specialization and/or to broaden the knowledge in specific field. Research thesis will allow students to obtain opportunity to carry out research under the guidance of advisor.
Research interests in the division cover such areas as
– Enzyme Technology
– Protein Engineering
– Lipid Technology
– Carbohydrate Technology
– Flavor and Perfumery Technology
Our international PhD and MSc programs in Bioinformatics & Systems Biology (BIF) are designed for students who desire focused training in the elements of biology, computer science, and information technology needed for a successful career in the exciting new discipline of Bioinformatics & Systems Biology. Students in our program will receive comprehensive training in omics analysis, database design and management, software engineering and programming (including web-based development), simulation techniques and modeling, and data integration. Each student will apply their skills to a practical project, where they will design and implement a solution to a real-world problem under the guidance of an experienced mentor in industry or academia.
The Biotechnology (BIT) graduate programs at the School of Bioresources and Technology are interdisciplinary and innovative international graduate programs aiming to provide students seeking comprehensive training in a variety of biotechnology disciplines in response to the dramatic expansion of biotechnology-oriented industries worldwide. The curriculum is specifically designed to nurture competency, analytical skills as well as professional attributes of the students. We offer M.Sc. in Biotechnology program for B.Sc. graduates and a Ph.D. in Biotechnology for both B.Sc. and M.Sc. graduates.
The Natural Resource Management (NRM) Program was established in 1994 at the School of Bioresources and Technology to be responsible for graduate
program, research and development. This was in response to the importance of natural resource development to the region, and the need to create an educational and research base that enables multidisciplinary. Due to differences in topography, and social/ cultural needs of different regions, exchanging knowledge on a research basis with local people will be also encouraged. Furthermore, the program emphasizes science and scientific understanding of the systems that we are trying to manage and the application of scientific concepts and technologies for problem solving and decision-making in order to use, conserve, and manage natural resources.
In line with the government policy to improve the relationship between Thailand and its neighbors, KMITT is willing to assist Thailand`s neighbors to develop human capabilities including training and technical exchange. To do this, the Natural Resource Management program is being conducted in English and will accept students from Indochina, ASEAN and other regional countries. Students will be encouraged to do work in which the research activities are motivated by problems in their countries to satisfy their country needs.
The Master’s Degree Program consists of at least 25 credits of course work and at least 12 credits of thesis work. To complete the program, graduate students are required to take core courses, compulsory courses and to select elective(s) in related areas to enhance their knowledge within their field of interest. The research thesis will give students the opportunity to carry out research under the guidance of an advisor.
Selected research fields are as follows:
1. Agricultural Technology adaptation and rural development
2. Community resources management
3. Waste management
4. Ecology and Systematics
