With a policy of extending opportunities for education to reach more people in the country, Silpakorn University established the Faculty of Animal Sciences and Agricultural Technology at Phetchaburi Information Technology Campus in 2001. The new faculty aims at producing graduates with sound knowledge in both theory and practice of animal sciences. Opportunities will be available for students to learn and practice at government as well as private laboratories and farms to ensure that the students will be well-equipped to work efficiently upon graduation. The graduates will be able to work in government sectors, private sectors, as well as setting up animal farms of their own.
At the Faculty of Animal Sciences and Agricultural Technology, research activities aiming at developing and improving livestock and crop productivity and sustainability are conducted, and outreach projects are continuously implemented through a series of training workshops and other means of communication.
