RESEARCH & ACADEMIC CENTERS
School of Engineering and Technology has a wealth of innovative and untapped knowledge database from its masters and doctoral research activities. Many outreach and research centers are set up to transform the knowledge into industrial needs. These centers also serve to transfer the practical aspects and the society impacts of the knowledge and technology back to the class room.
ACSIG: ASIAN CENTER FOR SOIL IMPROVEMENT AND GEOSYNTHETIC
ACSIG provides a strategic location for advanced technological education, researches and outreach activities on the application and effective utilization of ground improvement techniques.
ACTS: ASIAN CENTER FOR TRANSPORTATION STUDIES
ACTS activities include modules on intelligent transportation systems, traffic simulation, freight transport, urban road safety and road safety audit.
REGIONAL NETWORK OFFICE FOR URBAN SAFETY
The Regional Network Office for Urban Safety (RNUS) is a collaborative center jointly operated by the AIT and the University of Tokyo for the promotion of urban safety engineering utilizing advanced engineering technologies including remote sensing and GIS.
