7 STRATEGIC RESEARCH THEMES

Sustainable Bioeconomy

SUB THEMES

Biofuels and Biorefinery | Bioresource Management and Utilization | Food for The Future | Sustainable Agriculture | Conservation ecology

Known as the “Food Basket of Asia” and “Kitchen of the World”, Thailand continues to rely on its abundant natural resources, as a base for economic and social advancement. Innovation to add value to bioresources and products derived from them sustainably along the entire agricultural sector value chain thus forms the crux of Thailand’s bioeconomy strategy. At KMUTT, researchers leverage their competence in various fields of science, technology and engineering (including bio-manufacturing) to advance precision farming and sustainable agriculture; post-harvest technology and food processing; innovative “foods for the future” (functional foods and nutraceuticals ); biofuel production , biomaterials, biochemical production; animal feed and animal vaccines, biopharmaceutical development and production, and conservation and sustainable utilization of biodiversity.

Innovative materials, Manufacturing and Construction

SUB THEMES

Advanced Materials, Design and Manufacturing | Smart Construction

Thailand is home to a number of materials-intensive manufacturing and construction industries, such as automobiles and auto-parts (and emerging aircraft parts manufacturing), electronics and electrical appliances, building materials, housing and commercial buildings,as well as road and rail transport infrastructure development. Innovation in greener, lighter and better performing materials is key to improving the competitiveness and sustainability of these industries. KMUTT researchers are working on different aspects of the synthesis, application and forming of materials, including metals, nonmetals, polymers and composites, that addresses the challenges of modern manufacturing and construction. They are also combining the university’s strength in robotics, automation, data analytics, and industrial engineering, to support Thai industries as they implement smarter manufacturing and construction in the era of “Industry 4.0”.

Sustainable Mobility

SUB THEMES

Next Generation Aerial Vehicle | Next Generation Vehicle | Rail System | Supply Chain Management | Transport Policy and Planning

In Thailand, transport is the second largest energy-consuming sector; responsible for a quarter of the total greenhouse gas emission and much of the urban air pollution. With increasing urbanization and rapid development in vehicle and digital technologies, ample opportunities and challenges abound for planning and implementing more sustain able mobility. KMUTT focuses research efforts on the

  1. development of next generation vehicles and associated technologies;
  2. rail systems related technology;
  3. transport demand, supply chain and logistics management, including intelligent transport systems;
  4. sustainable transport policies, such as energy-saving, greenhouse gas mitigation, and transport safety and
  5. Next generation aerial vehicle.

Sustainable Energy and Environment

SUB THEMES

Earth System and Climate Change | Energy Efficiency | Energy System Integration | Energy and Environmental Policy | Sustainable Environmental Technology and Management

With nearly half of its current energy imported and more than 80% sourced from fossil fuels, Thailand has put in place ambitious renewable energy and energy efficiency targets and plans to bolster energy security, improve the environment, and fulfill its greenhouse gas mitigation commitments. Thailand is also highly likely to be seve rely impacted by climate change. KMUTT thus focuses research in 6 key areas:

  1. renewable energy: biomass, biogas and biofuels, solar energy, grid integration and management of distributed energy resources (micro-grids, smart grids and energy storage);
  2. energy efficiency in buildings and industry;
  3. environmental technology for water quality, air quality and municipal solid waste (MSW) management
  4. climate change impacts and adaptation: climate scenarios, non-energy greenhouse gas mitigation in agriculture and forestry;
  5. water resource and coastal management;
  6. energy and environmental policy (including life cycle sustainability assessment).

Creative and Learning Society

SUB THEMES

Art and Design Innovation | Community Development and Management | Future Learning | Future Society

Thailand’s service industry accounts for more than half of national GDP. With a rich cultural heritage, a flair for design and increasing digitalization, Thailand aspires to excel as a “creative economy” by adding value to the service industry with creativity and innovation. At KMUTT, researchers leverage their strength in architecture, product design, media arts, and digital technology to foster creative society and contribute positively to the creative economy. Their efforts range from product design innovation for future living (including the convergence of art and technology), cultural and heritage conservation, to community development management. KMUTT’s learning innovation community is also actively engaged in developing and implementing new learning tools and methodologies such as outcome based learning, active learning, in addition to online and blended learning, to facilitate future learning and our learning society.
