Feedbacks/feeling on the programs:

When I first started my journey as a doctoral student in the program of Industrial Toxicology and Risk Assessment, Department of Environmental Science, Faculty of Science at Chulalongkorn University, I was a nomad and looking towards the horizon for setting my learning objective. The program not only helped to set my objectives but also made me a determined professional to work in the field of sustainable development. As a technocrat with a background in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, my learning revolved around stochastic modeling but my association and journey with the department of environmental science soon converted my understanding of sustainable development into conviction and belief. The topics and assignments of this program were relevant to my professional development. The teachers were very helpful during my research work and I was encouraged to think beyond the horizon and develop my research ideas. Finally, I would like to thank all the teachers of this program for their extended support and help in shaping and developing my goals and career objectives.

Master of Science (M.Sc.)

Feedbacks/feeling on the programs

Before joining Industrial Toxicology and Risk Assessment programs, I am a Marine Science graduated. There are some struggles according to the different study content. However, the professors from this program have given me consultation about the course syllabus, enhancement in some subjects, and the requirements. My purpose is to learn something new outside my background knowledge and try to adapt the lessons with it. After all, I achieved everything I wished from this program. I have learned basic toxicology, statistics coding, risk assessment in humans and the environment, waste management, community sanitation, and etc. This program is suitable for the one who wants to gain new experiences in the complete combination of environmental, toxicology, and risk management field which can be adjusted with diverse careers or further studies.

Feedbacks/feeling on the programs

I graduated Bachelor’s degree in environmental science and, expecting to earn the degree for career achievement when I first started in the program of Industrial Toxicology and Risk Assessment. However, this program provided beyond my expectation. There have been various interesting subjects that could be beneficial for your perspective, and career achievement. The class learning was very interesting and informative. Besides fundamental environmental science, I have gained knowledge about toxicology and health risk assessment for industrial application. Lastly, all the teachers in this program are incredible. I have earned valuable insight and enlightenment through the study, and I could not pass all struggles without their encouragement and guidance. I highly recommended this program to those who are looking for a great new academic journey.
