Congratulatory Message from Ministry of Education,
Culture, Sports, Science and Technology

I am delighted to deliver this message of congratulations
on the tenth anniversary of exchanges between Japan and the
Princess Chulabhorn Science High Schools. It is so pleasing to
note the joy and enthusiasm with which the high school students
of Japan and Thailand apply themselves to their studies.

Since their establishment, all twelve Princess Chulabhorn
Science High Schools have formed ties with the Super Science
High Schools, and maintain a close relationship with Japan,
for example, in the presentation of research results and student
exchanges.

Education and science have no borders. I believe that when
Japanese and Thai high school students present and discuss
what they have studied, the experience gives them a tangible
feeling that what they are doing is accepted internationally and
motivates them to achieve greater things.

Exchanges between the Super Science High Schools and the
Princess Chulabhorn Science High Schools are also meaningful
for the promotion of friendship between Japan and Thailand.

The basis of any relationship between countries is people.
For young high school students, international exchange is an
opportunity to broaden their horizons, and it can also foster
mutual understanding between our two countries. This will
surely help to maintain and develop our longstanding
friendship for future generations.

Japan and Thailand are indispensable partners in various
fields: economic, diplomatic, technology. I believe that the sphere
of educational exchange will be appreciated in the future.

In conclusion, I look forward to further collaboration
between Japan and the Princess Chulabhorn Science High
Schools and its resulting contribution to the friendship and
prosperity of both our countries.

Congratulatory Message from the Japan Science
and Technology Agency (JST)

On behalf of the Japan Science and Technology Agency,
we would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations on the
10th anniversary in 2020 of the development of the Princess
Chulabhorn Science High Schools (PCSHSs) under the Thailand
cabinet resolution.

The Princess Chulabhorn Science High Schools are widely
known for nurturing students exceling in mathematics and science through specialized
and intensive curricula. We express our deepest admiration for the contribution to
education for the next generation afforded by these exceptional schools.

We, the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), play a central role in
implementing programs based on the science and technology targets issued by
the Japanese government. The programs cover funding strategic basic research,
academia-industry collaboration and technology-transfer. One of our significant
pillars is to promote the fostering of next-generation talents through various programs
including Super Science High Schools (SSHs). We firmly believe it is crucial to foster
young talent to guarantee the future success of our societies.

The SSH program was established in 2002 with the backing of the Ministry of
Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), and 26 high schools
received the designation of SSH with 6,500 students being enrolled. JST provides
financial support for them to conduct educational activities during the designated
period. Educational administrative institutions, such as boards of education, perform
essential functions in assisting the schools. In this way, people from diverse
positions engage in the operation. These numbers have steadily increased to its current
level of 218 designated high schools nation-wide, and more than 130,000 students. It
is our great pleasure many alumni are at the forefront of their fields in science and
technology both here in Japan and abroad.

We appreciate the ties between PCSHSs and SSHs, having attained 16 MOUs since
2011. They are located throughout each country and provide advanced education,
reflecting our shared mission of growing young talent in the fields of science.
The fruitful educational links empower the students with a wide spectrum of
joint activities as well as extended communication by means of Information and
Communication Technology (ICT) especially during these unique and challenging
times. Cross-cultural experiences in adolescence broaden their perspectives and
cultivate a global outlook, important for the world leaders of tomorrow.

We very much look forward to strengthening their firm relationship and fostering
mutual prosperity. We sincerely hope for your continued success.

Congratulatory Message from National Institute
of Technology (NIT)

PCSHS and KOSEN have many things in common, such as
fostering talented students in science and mathematics and having
schools with students’ dormitories across the country. Thus, PCSHS
and National Institute of Technology (NIT), the headquarters of
51 national KOSEN colleges, signed the comprehensive academic
exchange agreement in December 2016.

I remember that the student exchanges between two institutions started immediately.
Then, in March 2017, 24 students from nine 9 PCSHS schools visited NIT Ibaraki College
to experience the first KOSEN Camp, followed by the second KOSEN Camp in August 2017.

On January 3, 2018, the Thai cabinet approved a new Royal Thai Government
Scholarship Program for the PCSHS students to study at KOSEN for seven years, with
the five years in the regular course and the two more years in the advanced course.

In response to this decision, NIT and KOSEN faculty members, in four groups and
32 in total, visited all PCSHS schools to introduce KOSEN as “KOSEN Caravan” in
May 2018. Furthermore, NIT developed a plan to support KOSEN colleges in accepting
PCSHS students. As a result, the facilities were renovated, and the new faculty members
were hired to provide necessary supports for their study and life in Japan.

The first batch of Thai Royal Government Scholarship students enrolled in April 2018,
and currently, 46 students study at KOSEN in Japan. About one hundred students will
study at KOSEN under this scholarship program continuing to the 6th batch in 2023.
Until the academic year 2021, six KOSEN colleges, Hachinohe, Sendai, Ibaraki,
Nagaoka, Akashi, and Tsuyama, have joined to accept the PCSHS students. From the
academic year 2022, four more KOSEN colleges, Toyama, Anan, Kochi, Okinawa, will
join the former six, making it ten colleges to accept the PCSHS students.

I know that the students from PCSHS are very talented, and they have been active
not only on campus but also in other activities such as student contests in the fields of
science and technology. The high performances of the Thai students at KOSEN are a
great inspiration for the Japanese KOSEN students as well. I am very much proud of these
students, and I am sure they will be world-class engineers and create our bright future.

KOSEN professors and students have deepened their friendships with the PCSHS
teachers and students by participating in and contributing to the events in Thailand,
namely the Thailand-Japan Student Science Fair in June 2018 and February 2021 and the
Thailand-Japan Student ICT Fair in December 2019.

Due to the spread of the COVID-19 infection, conducting international programs is very
challenging. I know that all parties involved have made excellent efforts for the students to
continue learning and develop their abilities and skills to become “Social Doctors (Doctors
for the Society)”, the engineers who can solve various social problems to make people
happy and create a bright future.

I genuinely hope that PCSHS and KOSEN enhance collaboration and cooperation
further and stronger in the coming years.

Let’s thrive together and bring up “Social Doctors” for the global community.

Dr. TANIGUCHI Isao

President National Institute of Technology (KOSEN), Japan

Congratulatory Message from the Toyohashi University
of Technology

Congratulations! I would like to express my sincere gratitude
to hold the event celebrating 10 years of cooperation between
Japan and Princess Chulabhorn Science High Schools
(PCSHS). I acknowledged that PCSHS had started cooperation
with Japanese schools in 2011. Especially, PCSHS started
academic cooperation with Japanese KOSEN in 2016.

The Toyohashi University of Technology (TUT) was
established in 1976 with the mission of unraveling technology
from scientific perspectives and facilitating education and
research in technological science, a study with a focus on the
development of more advanced technologies and systematic
organization of technologies.

TUT is a very unique university that about 80% of our students
are graduated from KOSEN. The Royal Thai Government
started to dispatch the Royal Thai Government Scholarship
students to Japanese KOSEN in April 2018. Since then, the
scholarship will continue until the academic year 2023 and
beyond. The scholarship covers 7 years for each student for
learning in the Regular course and Advanced course in KOSEN.
After that, some of them may wish to pursue graduate studies
in Japan. I hope that they will choose TUT as a place to learn
and introduce Japanese engineering education back into the
Royal Kingdom of Thailand.

“Master Technology scientifically and Create novel innovative
Technology” is the motto of our university. TUT seeks to contribute
society through the facilitation of top-level education programs
and research.

We are very happy to welcome students from PCSHS
to study further especially for getting a Master’s degree and
Doctoral degree in Engineering in the near future.

All the best,

Mr. Jerashine Terashima Kazuhiko

President, Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan
