The School of Information Science and Engineering (IST) is the newest academic unit at VISTEC, founded in 2017. Despite our young age, we have established ourselves as Thailand's leading informatics graduate research unit attracting outstanding students across the country and beyond.
IST offers research-intensive informatics programs at the M.Eng. and Ph.D. levels with a focus on Advanced Automation and Machine Intelligence. Specifically, the School comprises five research groups where each focuses on a specific topic, namely: Scalable Data Systems, Computer Vision, Networking, Robotics, and Brain-Computer Interfaces.
Our mission is to promote the academic excellence culture in terms of informatics research in Thailand while maintaining strong relevance to societal and industrial needs. Our commitment to this mission is demonstrated through high-quality research outcomes published at top journals and conferences and high-impact government- and industry-sponsored projects.
