As Thailand has been progressing towards becoming an industrialized country, it has continuously been facing hardships due to a shortage of qualified personnel with knowledge and skills. Having realised that Thailand was in dire need of people with industrial skills, Dr. Narong Mongkhonvanit took on the responsibility of resolving this shortage. In 1965 he decided to establish Thailand’s first private vocational institution that could provide industrial skills and named it “Siam Institution of Technology”. Over several decades, as the institution had been driven by extensive vision and determination to move forward, it later changed its name into Siam Technology College (Siam Tech) and added a Commercial Department to its curriculum. From its conception up till now, Siam Technology College has been regarded as one of the leading and qualified vocational institutions in Thailand. Through the growth of its structure as a leading and innovating institute it has shown a solid commitment to contribute back to the Thai society and Thai youth.

All the courses provided by these two faculties were relevant to the courses offered by Siam Technology College (Siam Tech). Later on, it expanded its curriculum by offering a variety of bachelor and master programs in the fields of business, industry, and technology. The college operates on the principles of equality and continuity, focusing on educating students of all educational backgrounds and from all educational institutes.
