This year, the University Expo 2018 marks the time when the power of higher education works together to drive the nation’s technology and innovation of Thailand 4.0. During the exhibition, potential students will have the opportunity to take part in the ‘aiSCT test’ to help them choose the right faculty for their future.
To honor the 45th anniversary of the Council of University President’s of Thailand, 33 institutes have joined together to show their strengths and potential at the time of Thailand 4.0.

This will help the nation’s economy develop and help its citizens obtain a better quality of life. This strategic plan is a 20-year plan to enable society with modern tools and knowledge to succeed in their future.
