Automotive Design and Manufacturing Engineering (ADME)
RATIONALE OF ADME
Automotive industries are truly worldwide business consisting of international muti disciplinary functions in high-tech engineering, manufacturing, design, research and development, logistics, management & marketing and covers all areas of seven continents such as USA, Europe, Africa, Australia, and especially Asia where in this decade all automotive concentration accounted for 60 % of global Automotive Industries.
As a key manufacturer hub in Asean , Thailand is positioned as a strategic exporting location for supplying international automobile market. Thailand has a long histories of well established part and component suppliers with great infrastructure and enabling business environment supported by political stability. The Thai government is employing policies that enable Thailand being a “Detroit of Asia”, an automotive hub of the region, by encouraging investment, manufacturing hub, as well as other activities such as research and development. Several strategic plans are issued to fulfill this need.
With strong growth of automotive industries in the region, the current and upcoming activities require engineers with multi-engineering knowledge and skills with international communication capability. The Automotive Design and Manufacturing Engineering (ADME) program offers a new dimension of multi disciplinary courses profiling from automotive engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering design, manufacturing, regulation and management. As Thailand is being automotive hub in the region, in addition to manufacturing growth other automotive activities such as designs and developments continue to grow and so the demand of qualified engineers within the region. This international program will provide graduates with multi engineering knowledge and skills to fit perfectly for the much-needed automotive assemblers, part and component makers and other supporting industries and related manufacturers. The ADME program has well established relationships with automobile manufacturers and some of the classes are conducted along with them to fulfill student's industrial expertise.
Students may choose to concentrate in the field which will benefit them most in different engineering areas of automotive industry ranging from automotive design to manufacturing. Besides the industrial career path, graduates may choose to pursue a higher degree in the related fields.
OBJECTIVES OF ADME
The primary objective is to provide international education program in automotive engineering that have multi engineering disciplinary knowledge and skills necessary for automotive industries, in order to serve industrial human resource demand in the region.
BENEFITS OF ADME
Our ADME graduates being specialized are gifted with expertise in both automotive design and manufacturing engineering. Our Program trains students to have a solid background in both fields with a flexibility to choose to specialize in either topic. This advantage doubles the job opportunities for our graduates, while serving the local and international automotive industry with qualified and versatile engineers with a broad academic background.
