About ICTechED 9:

Currently is a crucial time for Thailand and many other countries to push forward the development of all aspects required to strengthen the country’s competitiveness in an exceedingly competitive global economy. The Sufficiency Economy Philosophy has been and continues to be a vital element of development strategy as they underpin the promotion of moderation, reasonableness, and resilience. The Sustainable Development Goals: SDGs are the plan for a brighter, more sustainable future for all. By stimulating the advancement of science, technology, research, and innovation, these principles have made a substantial contribution to balancing change and smoothing the transition to the “NEXT-GENeration.”

The Faculty of Technical Education (FTE), King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUTNB) has continuously concentrated on producing and developing qualified technical teachers in Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral levels while conducting and publicizing research in both technical education and engineering over 53 years. That is a consequence of the academic cooperation between the Thai Government and the Federal Republic of Germany especially in the knowledge transfer regarding the “Engineering Teacher”. Until now, FTE has always encouraged instructors, students, and researchers to research vocational development for quality education, learning, and skills enhancement.

In association with AITET for 9 years, The 14th National Conference on Technical Education (NCTechED 14) and The 9th International Conference on Technical Education (ICTechED 9) will be organized under the theme of “Engineering Education and Blended Learning to the NEXT-GENeration”. The objective of The 9th ICTechED is to provide an international forum for researchers, academicians as well as engineers to initiate, distribute, and exchange knowledge, new ideas, and application experiences about engineering and technical education to establish a sound foundation for future industries and capture opportunities from global trends and technology.
