Message from the Vice-President for Kamphaeng Saen Campus
For previous 37 years throughout, Kasetsart University, Kamphaeng Saen Campus (KU.KPS.) has been continuously and determinedly conducting missions of education, research, academic services and preservation and support of national arts and culture through cordial cooperation among students, faculty members, researchers, supporting staff, external organizations from both public and private sectors, alumni and neighboring communities.
KU.KPS. is located on a vast area of over 8,000 rais or 3,000 acres in Kamphaeng Saen, Nakhon Pathom, the lower central region of Thailand where is the center of farming and related industries. It is a source of diverse knowledge bodies: agricultural science and technology, engineering, veterinary medicine, education & development science, sports science and service industry. It has been producing, through undergraduate & graduate studies and short and long term training, a lot of human resources with skills and abilities for public and private sectors including independent personal business. It has also been developing and creating new knowledge bodies, technologies and innovations which are significantly useful and both nationally and internationally recognized. Its educational and academic cooperation with leading institutions abroad is increasingly growing. It is strength that KU.KPS. gives priority to this cooperation. Moreover, it attempts in every way to enhance the overall campus performance in terms of education, research, and academic services. Through continuous development and improvement, the campus environment inside is very cool and pleasant, with fresh air and far away from urban commotion. This is a place suitable for natural studies, recreational activities and physical exercises. On the campus, there are some gymnasiums and stadiums of national standards including an upcoming grand convention center. Every year at the beginning of summer when a variety of beautiful flowers is blooming and in early December when Kaset Kamphaeng Saen Fair is held, KU.KPS. annually and proudly welcomes all interested people from everywhere.
In the age of regional and global changes where natural resources and the environment are destroyed and deteriorating; natural disasters increasingly happen; economy and finance are still fluctuating and wide-spread poverty persists, as an higher educational institution, KU.KPS. must be strengthened, ready and able to create appropriate people and knowledge bodies to cope with these critical issues. I, on behalf of KU.KPS., am quite confident that with the great accumulated background of our campus, great strength in missions of education, research, and academic services and persistent determination among students, faculty members, and supporting staff, we can move securely forward following the KU Philosophy that “Kasetsart University aims to create knowledges of the land for the well-being of nation.”
