The Association of Council of IT Deans (CITT)

  • Introducing the CITT website
  • Currently, information technology has played a significant role in improving quality and sustaining life in society, as well as the economic competitiveness of Thailand and the world. Organizations of all types have incorporated information technology as an essential tool in their strategies and operations for increased efficiency and effectiveness. This has resulted in a high demand for personnel and innovations in the field of information technology. Consequently, one of the critical roles of higher education institutions is to serve society and contribute to the country‚Äôs development. Many institutions have recognized the importance of information technology and have developed curricula and teaching programs in related fields over the past decade.

    In Thailand, several universities have acknowledged the importance of producing high-quality graduates in these fields by establishing faculties or units responsible for teaching information technology and related subjects. These faculties are usually named the Faculty of Information Technology, although some universities may have similar names such as the Faculty of Information Science, the Faculty of Information Technology and Communication, or the Faculty of Science and Information Technology. At present, the Faculty of Information Technology is a widely recognized educational institution in the public, industrial, and educational sectors, attracting numerous students interested in studying and pursuing careers in information technology and related fields.

    Since 2006, the deans of faculties of information technology or related faculties from nine universities have been meeting regularly to discuss and exchange academic ideas, research, and community service. One outcome of these meetings is the organization of the National Conference on Information Technology, which has been hosted by different universities to date. Additionally, they have published the Journal of Information Science and Technology and initiated activities to reduce the digital divide. However, all nine deans agree that establishing an independent organization in the form of the Council of Deans of Information Technology Faculties of Thailand is a crucial direction to promote academic strength and research in information technology and related fields and ensure their long-term sustainability. Furthermore, the establishment of the council will help higher education institutions have a representative academic organization for information technology and related fields, which can contribute to the development of society, economy, and the nation, and prepare for the ASEAN community in the future.
