Exchange Programs

To advance the student’s knowledge and to exchange knowledge between Thai and foreign students as well as to widen the student’s perspective to understand the differences in lifestyle, idea, culture, and architecture, ARCH CMU regularly encourages its students to see the importance in joining an exchange program. Our students had joined many exchange programs, e.g., to Japan, Korea, Singapore.

Moreover, we also organize inbound exchange program with scholarship provided in every semester giving the opportunity to students from partner universities to come study and share some knowledge and experience with ARCH CMU students.
