International Relation

Globalization affects many sectors of society. Higher education is no exception. Universities worldwide respond to challenges presented by globalization in various ways.

One response is the internationalization of the university campus.

Universities represent the traditional source of knowledge in society. They provide an environment that generates ideas, skills, and inventions, all components of knowledge. Universities constantly face pressure to conform to the needs of society, however what makes universities unique is their power to withstand times of change, and time after time, reemerge as the key providers of knowledge.

Campuses once geographically bound to one physical place now have the opportunity to expand and network between states, regions, and international locations. In addition, technology enables professors and students access to a world of information previously available only at high costs and over long periods of time. The desire for education created by a population that continually seeks education, further supports changes within the university. These forces continue to alter the structure of the university in three ways, which includes changes to the structure of governance, expansion of campus networks, and enhancement of university community partnerships.

The University of Global Village has for long been aware of its role in a larger international academic community, and in pursuance of this, the University has been reaching out to fraternal institutions in different parts of the world for collaborative programmers’, research networks, student exchanges and so on.

Study Tour in Bangkok

Introduction

In the first instance, I would like to thanks to our Honorable Chairman Mr Imran Chowdhury and our Management who take all the efforts for this tour. Management and Engineering as a profession can’t teach merely in the four wall of the classrooms. Only theoretical knowledge is not sufficient to bit the competitive world. Practical knowledge is equally important. The main aim of study tour is to aid students to acquire basic knowledge.

This report gave an overview of what I learned about Bangkok during the study tour. By a broad and extensive overview of having travelled through Thailand through University Of Thai Chambers of Commerce and Siam University I was especially struck by how the situation of the First Nation. Last but not the least, I would thank for all group members for their coordination and cooperation.

Accommodation

Our accommodation for the entire trip was in a Royal Asia Lodge, which not only provided inexpensive living, but always came with a free breakfast (essential), comfortable beds, friendly staff and sometimes free Wi-Fi. Most of the hostels were in an extremely accessible part of the city with good communication.

The tour has involved three distinct

components Day 1 date 02-10-2018

We visited University of Thai Chambers of Commerce. There I had a meeting with Associate Dean of Accademic Affaiirs Mr Miroslave and Head of International Affairs Ms Prichart. Therefore, after meeting me along with students went to see their liabrary and class room and lab.

Significance

 Enhance skill development and competancy building.
 Developing ability to critically analysis the situation.

 Its provides first hand knowladge about the organizational structure and modes of operation in different engineering departments.

Day 2 date 03-10-2018

We visited Temple and Grand Palace. During our Study Tour in Bangkok we have visited several Temples: international, national and regional which are typical for Bangkok or Thailand. That showed us how different culture can be around the world and some solutions which may come to our country soon. Each Temple is different in culture and history. During the Study Tour in Bangkok we meet some really interesting people but the most important and valuable experience that we have was actually meeting people - in different culture, language and countries. We visited many different souvenir shop, local street market which is a parts of agriculture market and share their knowledge with us.

Day 3 Date 04-10-2018

Sightseeing day

This day was the day of sightseeing we visited the beautiful city of Bangkok. The annual Thai theatre festival was taking place during our visit so we found a lot of artist playing on street and inviting us for their plays in the evening. On the street there were plenty of people so we especially on main street from the castle. Cities in Thailand are very different from other countries; most buildings are wooden and really beautiful.

Street food

The world of Thai street food can be an exciting, if occasionally bewildering, place. Bangkok can provide intrepid diners with hours of culinary exploration, but you should know where to go. I enjoyed the food very much. No exploration of Bangkok’s street food is complete without a trip to Chinatown (referred to among locals as Yaowarat), which is considered the birthplace of street food in Thailand and remains a prime foodie destination. And any discussion of Thai street food must also include a mention of satay – meat that is threaded on a bamboo stick, grilled over an open flame and served with peanut sauce and an ajad of cucumber, shallots and chillies in sugar syrup.

Old town

Bangkok’s Old Town is also known as Banglamphu, after the lamphu trees that once lined the area’s many canals – is a treasure trove of old-style Thai street food specialties that are hard to find elsewhere. Here, the most famous vendors have been around for decades, nourished by several generations’ of culinary know-how.

Day 4 Date 05-10-2018

I had a meeting in Siam University with Head of the Engineering and Business department Dr Om and Rathavoot and also Director of the International realtion Ms Yhing. Me along with my students I went there at 1.00 pm we had a very fruitful meeting, after that we visited the University and all the engineering lab. We left the University premises at 5.00. During the visit we comes to know lot of things which will be benefited for us in future.

Sukhumvit

After Siam University I went Sukhumvit area for shopping. Although this area (named after the traffic- packed road that runs through it) is now an upscale neighborhood full of expats, Starbucks and sushi bars, Sukhumvit still bears testament to the fact that, wherever money is, good food and shopping of all types will follow. Of all the chicken noodle vendors in Bangkok, Guaythiew Pik Gai Sainampung (392/20 Sukhumvit Road between Sois 18 and 20) stands out for its cleanliness, charmingly cluttered decor, and delicious soup noodle menu. The specialty of the house, after which this old-fashioned shop house is named, is guaythiew pik gai, a soup noodle dish in which your choice of sen mee (rice vermicelli), sen yai (thick rice noodles), or giem ee (Chinese-style handrolled noodles) is doused in a long-simmering chicken broth and topped with chopped peanuts, julienned green beans and chicken wings that have braised overnight. Therefore, I shop for me and some gift items from platinum, Pratunum and street market.

Day 5 Date 06-10-2018

This is the last day of our tour. We left the hotel at 12.30 towards Subarnavhumi airport. Educational Tour gives us ideas likewise opportunities to visit prestigious Universities that may help us visualize what we are learning at our University. This activity helps us to develop our personality since social graces and etiquette are learned too by experience. Moreover, important to every student since it is a part of our learning process to acquire more knowledge through actual exposure to the different Universities.

Acknowledgements

I am most grateful to all the people who have been named in this report for their help and assistance in making the tour so productive, and for being so generous with their time and ideas.

Additionally, though, there are two further sources of help and encouragement that made the tour possible.

Conclusion

I wish to acknowledge here the help provided by our management committee and Board of trustees. The trip was a great success proving to be highly educational, not only in the field of Engineering, but in Thai culture and International experiences such as these are invaluable for enhancing a students' understanding of the world, which greatly improves networking and personal development. The opportunity to visit Bangkok is an asset to students of Engineering at the University of Global Village, and it would be great to continue the tradition.
