About Us


               TNI's founder, Technology Promotion Association (Thailand-Japan) or TPA, operates under the philosophy of "disseminating knowledge, building economic bases". For over 45 years, TPA is a medium for disseminating technology, management, and engineering from Japan to Thai personnel. It also has played a significant role in cultivating the workforce that contributes to the development of the Kingdom of Thailand's economy.  

               The founding committee of TNI contemplated that the philosophies of TPA and TNI must coincide with each other to position TNI as an academic institute with emphasis on creating and developing personnel with knowledge and service to the society. Therefore, the TNI philosophy for operation is developing knowledge, enriching industry for economy and society.
