Our School of Architecture and Design (SoA+D) at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) is under an important transformation stage in many aspects. Despite the fact that systems of architectural and design education is fusing itself into a broader range of study fields because of its strength in project-based learning platform, its holistic approach and its focus on creativity which apparently a strong foundation for innovation the modern world currently look for. We can deal with almost anything in the real world using architectural and design thinking. But when we come back to see how architecture and design will be practiced in this rapidly changing world, a lot of things need to be modernized to cope with new economic norm, new technology, depleting resources, accumulating environmental problems, and lifestyle of the new workforce population, etc. The questions of what would be the skills for 21st century need to be answered. Our School has a strong believe in outcome-based education. We are trying very hard to engage students, lecturers and staff together with our alliances in faith that our goals will be successfully reached.
