Cooperation with SIIT, Thailand

Located in the north of Bangkok, the Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT) at Thammasat University is an English-speaking institution which has particularly close ties with our university. Financially supported by the DAAD, numerous visits by professors in both directions and two summer schools at the SIIT have already taken place. More than 80 German and Thai students have completed a semester or a project work at the respective partner university. With regard to contents, the cooperation focuses on projects in the fields of Robotics (Prof. Voos), Regeneration and Reuse of Water from Wastewater (Prof. Fritsch) and Technology Management (Prof. Philippi-Beck).

Students in the Technology Management program who have qualified for the area of concentration TM-International spend their 4th and 5th semesters at the SIIT focusing on the study of Supply Chain Management. The modules they are taking there are well integrated in our study and examination regulations so as to ensure a complete transfer of the credits earned in Thailand. In return, Thai students attend the International Academy in Weingarten.

The German Academic Exchange Serice (DAAD) strongly supports this cooperation in the frame of the program "Subject-related Partnerships with Institutions of Higher Education in Developing Countries" (2002 - 2009).
