UPM and 2 Top Thai's Agriculture Varsities Offer Dual Degree Programme

February 5, 2015 - Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) has recently signed a Memorandum of Agreements (MoA), offering double degree programmes with Thailand’s two top  universities: Kasetsart University and Maejo University. The agreements were signed by the UPM Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mohd. Fauzi Ramlan during his official visit to Thailand which took place from 2-5 February 2015.

Kasetsart University which is the 5th best university in Thailand, has agreed to collaborate with UPM by offering  dual degree programme at Master’s and PhD level in various fields of study, particularly in areas related to agriculture, food science, forestry, agro-industry and economy among others. Meanwhile, the collaboration with Maejo University would offer dual PhD programme in areas related to agriculture, food science and technology and food engineering.

As mentioned by Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mohd. Fauzi Ramlan, the programmes will qualify the  students to be awarded with two graduate certificates from UPM and Kasetsart University / Maejo University respectively upon their completion of study. This MoA will also provide a solid platform for gaining new experiences and creating a vast and immense working network via the research collaborations conducted by the two universities, thus catapulting the students towards a better career future. Malaysian and Thai students will also benefit since local rate fees will be levied on them during their candidature.

With the addition of the latest MoA, the current number of UPM International Cooperation Program (UPM-ICP) has increased to 14 programmes in total, involving 11 top universities around the world including the University of Sheffield, University of Glasgow, University of Nottingham, Ajou University, Kyushu Institute of Technology, University of Newcastle, Australia, University of Southern Queensland, Naresuan University and South Kazakhstan State University.

On top of these two universities, the UPM delegates had also paid a visit to Mahidol University and Chulalongkorn University to explore and inquire the possibilities of future collaborations such as staff exchange programme, students mobility programme (inbound and outbound) and dual degree programme too.
