 Post-graduate Education Program

In January 1999, CRI, operating through the International Centre for Environmental and Industrial Toxicology (ICEIT) in collaboration with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and Mahidol University (MU), opened the interuniversity postgraduate program, at Master's and Ph.D. levels in Environmental Toxicology, Technology and Management. These innovative, multi-disciplinary programs combine health sciences, biotechnology and environmental engineering.

   

 

 


The curriculum has been designed by a team of international experts with support from the United Nations Development Programme to train human resources capable of undertaking control and management of toxic chemicals, as well as research and development in the areas of environmental toxicology, technology and environmental management.
The graduate students in this program come primarily from countries in Asia and the Pacific region such as China, Nepal, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Laos, Mongolia and Myanmar, but in the past years, there have been graduate students from Finland as well.
