In 1973, growing concern over deteriorating natural resource and environmental conditions in Thailand led to the establishment of Thailand's first institution of environmental education at Mahidol University, the Environmental Education and Research Project (EERP) and the first master programme in Technology of Environmental Management by, Assoc.Prof.Dr.Nart Tuntawiroon, an internationally recognized expert in environmental and natural resource management. In 1978, the EERP was renamed the Faculty of Environment and Resource Studies. The programme's goal is to contribute to the protection of Thailand's rich natural environment through research and the teaching of sustainable management practices and through the promotion of environmental awareness in the communities.

Philosophy


The Program focuses on enabling students to create a vision, achieve a high level of technical knowledge, morality and ethics, as well as realize their potential in the planning and management of natural resources and environmental sustainability. This includes the ability to develop, analyze and synthesize ideas which benefit society through the learning process by integrating both theory and functional operations. It is consistent with the current changing situation in socio-economic, environmental and technological dimensions.
