Thammasat English Programme of Engineering (TEPE)

After the tremendous success of the Twinning Engineering Programmes. The Thammasat English Programme of Engineering (TEPE) was started in 2002. TEPE is an undergraduate English programme whose objectives are not only to provide world-class engineering education and research opportunities, but to do so while ensuring that our students have the communication skills necessary to thrive in both domestic ant international stages.

The costs that are incurred to take a full time course abroad can be significantly expensive. One option open to students is to study under TEPE programme. Students will gain the same quality as the TEP, but the overall costs are much lower. TEPE students take all courses at Thammasat University where all teaching and learning are done through a mixture of lectures, class discussions, brainstorming, group work, and presentations. With a small class size, students enjoy the benefits of exchanging their ideas and opinions with their instructor. This stimulates new ideas and new areas for discussion. Students occasionally take trips to factories to receive hands-on experience. Moreover, a training session at an industrial company is required for students to experience the real- world work environment.

English proficiency has become an asset for anyone aiming to achieve academic or business recognition at the international level. TEPE has acknowledged this need by placing English language as one of its priorities in the course structure. Throughout the curriculum, a wide range of English courses will be offered to elevate students competence up to the standard level. Students will be trained in all skills, which are listening, reading, writing, and speaking, so that their abilities can be comparable to those graduating from universities abroad. During university breaks, English camps are arranged either in Thailand or abroad as an opportunity for students to sharpen their communicative skills and to apply what they have learnt in class to real life practice. 

Before their graduation from TEPE, students are required to submit an English proficiency test result (IELTS or TOEFL), which meets the programme minimum requirement. In this way, all TEPE students are ensured to be equipped with English skills at the standard level needed for further study abroad or for a career in an international organisation.
