Message from the Vice-President for KamphaengSaen Campus
Greetings and a warm welcome to Kasetsart University, KamphaengSaen Campus (KU.KPS)!
Thank you for your interest in visiting our campus through our website; nevertheless, if possible I would like to invite you to personally explore some of modern and advanced facilities and to enjoy our scenic and resort-like campus.
When I first assumed the responsibility as the Vice-President for KU.KPS on February 2011, I shared with the whole community my vision. I strongly desire the campus to become a perfect agricultural learning university that features 5 dimensions:
Green (green food, green energy, green environment, green tourism)
Clean (clean air and clean soil)
Safe (a safe and secure campus)
Healthy (everyone to be fit & firm)
Wealthy (everyone to be economically self-sufficient)
At present, KU.KPS is making every endeavour to build a connection of cooperation with neighbouring communities in the Kamphaeng Saen District through The Integrated Community Development of 9 Villages, Temples, and Schools Project or the 9 V’s, T’s, and S’s Project. In this project, 9 villages, 9 temples, and 9 schools in the area of Kamphaeng Saen District have been recruited to develop H.M.’s initiative “Villages of Well-Being & Happiness ”, “Drug-Free Villages”, “Science & Technology Villages”, “ Schools of Self-Sufficiency Economy”, “Schools of Science & Technology” “Schools to Build-up Prospectus Citizen with Virtue and Morality”, “Monasteries as Centres for Preserving and Disseminating Thai National Arts & Culture” “Citizen of Quality and Ethics”.
Another current project includes the KU.KPS Agro-Eco-Tour Promotion Project of which motto is :“Why travel far? Visit KU.KPS”. This project is to promote our a large number of tourist attractions and destinations : Insect Living Dome & Museum, Beef Production R&D Centre /Cowboy Land, KU Prototype Farm for Vegetable Chemical-free Production, Innovative Health Park in Celebration of His Majesty the King’s 84th Birthday Anniversary, etc.
Regarding international affairs, at present we have an annual student exchange programs with Japanese universities: Tokyo University of Agriculture (TUA), University of Tsukuba, Nagoya University and Okayama University. In the near future we hope to the extended the program with Chinese and Korean universities. In order to internationalize our campus, we also encourage our faculty members, staff and students to improve their communicative skills of English through Practical Training Programs for Enhancement of English Communicative Skills, taught by native-speaker teachers throughout the academic year. Moreover, A Preparation Course for English Proficiency Tests is provided.
As a campus of agricultural sciences, KU.KPS has facilitated learning & instruction, research and academic work for over three decades since first opening its doors in 1979. We are very proud and quite confident that our scenic and resort-like campus will satisfy any and all of your expectations and purposes, be they of obtaining an higher education, teaching, R & D in Agriculture and related sciences, or even agro/eco tour for educational and recreational purposes.
KU.KPS, strives to develop itself as a world class research-based, one that will fulfil your needs, the needs of our local community and global community at large.
Again, we are very delighted to welcome you and please enjoy our campus!
