Kasetsart University has launched a one-year postgraduate programme to help develop a new pool of talent to support the growth of Thai beverage industry.

Assoc Prof Dr Anuvat Jangchud, dean of the university’s Faculty of Agro-Industry, said the Thai beverage sector is likely to grow by up to 2 per cent post-Covid-19 era and this is the perfect time to help develop the industry, which currently comprises a growing number of SMEs.

This diploma programme aims to support the industry by providing training to upskill/reskill workers.

The postgraduate diploma programme in Beverage Technology and Management was created under the Southeast Asia Academy for Beverage Technology (SEA-ABT) project supported by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE).

This program is the result of a collaboration between three Thai universities, namely Kasetsart University, Chulalongkorn University and King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, in association with universities from Austria, Italy, and Germany, along with various private sector organisations and education organisations within the European Union.

The 24-credit programme covers subjects designed and reviewed by EU experts to ensure students are given the know-how to enhance the beverage industry through a combination of modules related to science and technology as well as management of the beverage industry.

Classes will be held after business hours and be taught in Thai by lecturers from the three universities as well as industry specialists. Applications will be accepted from October with fees tentatively set at Bt90,000.

Official announcements will be made via www.agro.ku.ac.th.
