The main goals of the programs are to produce quality graduates with the knowledge and skills to manage the environment effectively and to conduct research work of an international standard. Emphasis is placed on developing full capacity of each student in the program and providing exceptional leadership at the national level. The programs have been jointly developed and operated by a consortium of five prominent universities, namely, Chulalongkorn University, Chiang Mai University, Khon Kaen University, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi, and Prince of Songkla University.
