Though it is a great chance for our students to exchange the culture and study abroad, it is difficult for us to collaborate effectively due to distance and lack of communication. That is why I believe that working together with local universities like the Royal University of Agriculture will be a great opportunity to improve the education program that we want to produce. Together, we looking to combine agriculture using technology to design a unique program where students can get the best from both fields. “

We have the ability to guide student learning and work very well for their machinic related skills but we don’t have the expertise to input AI, IoT, or use data to transform the machine to work smarter so we believe choosing to work together with a specialized academy like CADT we will fruitfully cover the part that we lacking. RUA look forward to seeing a comprehensive curriculum for the master’s degree program that is beneficial to producing qualified human resources and preparing them for industry 4.0 workforces. “

We sincerely hope that CADT and RUA will play an active role in the future. We look forward to working with all of you and ask for your continued cooperation.
