Chiang Mai University Vice President and Dean of the Faculty of Architecture Make Courtesy Visit to KIT President

 On February 10, 2023, President Morisako received a courtesy visit from Thailand’s Chiang Mai University (CMU) delegation led by Vice-President and Assist. Prof. Dr. Ekkachai Mahaek, and Dean of the Department of Architecture and Prof. Dr. Rawiwan Oranratmanee. Since the conclusion of the KIT-CMU Academic Exchange Agreement in 2005, our partnership has consistently grown from its initial Joint Architecture Workshop focus. In 2007, KIT and CMU began Japan’s first master’s degree level joint doctoral degree program while fostering cooperation and collaboration among students and faculty members of our institutions.
 Due to pandemic safety precautions, this visit, which coincided with the 2023 Joint Architecture Workshop, was hosted by KIT for the first time in 3 years. It provided President Morisako and KIT faculty members with an excellent opportunity to catch up on their old friendships with the faculty members accompanying 15 CMU workshop students to Japan.
 Thanks to its consistent success, both parties confirmed their eagerness to continue cooperating on joint degree program management. After the courtesy visit, architecture faculty members from KIT and CMU met to discuss the possibility of joint research and other ways of furthering our institutional ties.
