American Universities seek elite Thai students
Tennessee Tech University, California State University Fresno, University of San Francisco and Oregon State University Looking for Elite Thai Students.
Colleges across the USA have reported a steady decline in the number of engineering and science majors graduating from US Colleges and Universities. Currently, there is a very high need in these fields for incoming students, but few American students select the field of engineering.
To continue producing graduates for these in-demand fields, many US Universities have shifted their focus of recruitment for these majors to international students, specifically students from India. In particular, four of the best engineering and science schools, Tennessee Tech University, California State University Fresno, University of San Francisco and Oregon State University will be sending admissions representatives to meet prospective students in Bangkok.
Thai students interested in studying Science, Engineering, Technology and Math at a graduate or undergraduate level must come to The Four Seasons Hotel, 155 Rajadamri Road in Bangkok from 6PM-8PM on Thursday March 20, 2014 to meet with admissions representatives from these top US schools.
