Innovative Biotechnology, Sustainable Agro-Industry

Department of Biotechnology, one of the six departments in the Faculty of Agro-Industry, Kasetsart University, has been responsible for academic programs since 1980. It was the first university to hold an undergraduate course in biotechnology in Thailand. Master and doctorate courses were started in 1984 and 1989 respectively. More than 300 students graduated with bachelor and master degrees. Ninety five percent of undergraduate and graduate students were working in private companies or their own companies. For the relationship with foreign countries, we also have connections with Australia, Finland, Germany, Japan, Newzealand, USA and UK. Collaborative research in various areas have been carried out through the Academic Education Department, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the National Science & Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and British Council Programmes. Therefore, to strengthen the knowledge for students at a higher level, especially in research work, the international programme in Biotechnology (by research) was established for master and doctorate levels as well in 1996.

Bachelor of Science (Biotechnology)

The Department of Biotechnology produces graduates who will serve the future of Thai agro-industry and biotechnology industry with a strong knowledge in the control of microbial and biocatalyst for biological processes. Outstanding in process design and operation of production processes.
