Admissions now open for a 4-year Bachelor of Arts and Science in Integrated Innovation in Thailand’s top-ranked and oldest university.
While the world is facing cataclysmic changes, the future looks very uncertain. This is the time to empower yourself with knowledge, explore the unknown, and emerge as Global Pioneers. Welcoming them to Open House at the Chulalongkorn School of Integrated Innovation (ScII) was the Professor Worsak Kanok-Nukulchai, Executive Director of the School.
“We prepare our students for an unknown future where technology disruption is upending societies that are confronted with global megatrends,” Prof. Worsak told participants at the ScII event on December 18, 2020. “Amidst this, we prepare our students to serve the future — a future that is largely unknown to us,” he remarked. We aim to create a new breed of global citizens who are fully empowered to take on the new challenges.
“You may ask what would our graduates look like, and we envisage a future where you could be a Technology Innovator, Innovation Entrepreneur, Social Transformer, or a Digital Age Professional,” Prof. Worsak told a group of starry-eyed youngsters, many of whom skipped school to learn more about ScII, and its flagship program — Bachelor of Arts and Science in Integrated Innovation (BAScii). The hallmark of our program is that we have a unique international curriculum. We embrace transdisciplinary collaboration while focusing on four strategic areas — Digital Economy, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Health and Wellbeing, Sustainable Development, and Inclusive Community and Smart City. You can immerse yourself in an innovative ecosystem with investors, entrepreneurs, and government agencies to create startups either for profit or for societal gain.
ScII is the newest school established by Chulalongkorn University, and this is no ordinary place. For this is a school built for the new generation, the Digital natives, and here, we impart education to create Global Citizens for the Future, Prof. Worsak concluded.
For many participants, school-going students and parents alike, the ScII Open House was an occasion to learn about new developments in various fields and explore options that will prepare them for a better tomorrow.
Stressing the importance of the international approach and mindset was Ms Daria Dmitriyeva, International Affairs Officer, and providing an overview of the BAScii program was Dr. Warinya Chemnasiri, Director, Academic Affairs. Narrating their experiences, both in and out the classroom and labs were a group of first-year and sophomore BAScii students.
