Thammasat University (TU) is also one of the best known and respected universities in Southeast Asia. Originally named the University of Moral and Political Sciences when it was established in 1934, it has continually been a center for student uprising and political protest. Students gain experience with both economic and political issues, while integrating science and technology toward global development. From providing flood shelters in times of crisis to protests that changed the face of Thai democracy, Thammasat has become a leader in activism and change. The university maintains its commitment to students and the global community and continues to develop its science and technology facilities to give students an excellent foundation for the rest of their lives.
