Nestled in the vibrant city of Bangkok, 42 Bangkok is a beacon for digital enthusiasts and aspiring tech professionals. In this article, we’ll explore the unique qualities of this 42 campus and its mission to foster innovation and connect students with the world of IT.

Bangkok, known for its rich cultural heritage and modernity, is the perfect backdrop for 42. Situated at the King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), the campus provides a dynamic learning environment. Students not only benefit from the educational resources within the campus but also from the vibrant activities in the surrounding areas. Within the university, students have access to a variety of amenities, including a gymnasium, tennis court, football field, and even a cinema karaoke!

“During the Piscine, we sometimes invite a guest speaker to talk about the IT world or their careers. Some of our candidates are not in the IT field: linguistics, business, architecture… We give them some perspective to inspire them, motivate them, and we talk to them about the salaries!”
Chaiyan Jettanasen
Director of 42 Bangkok

42 Bangkok’s inception dates back to March 2019 when the campus’s president, inspired by 42’s unique peer-to-peer learning model, embarked on a mission to introduce it to Thailand. After a year of preparation, including setting up computer labs and other facilities, the campus was officially launched in February 2022.

The job market for IT professionals in Bangkok is booming, and 42 Bangkok ensures its students are well-prepared to seize these opportunities. The campus maintains strong ties with Thai tech companies and offers students a chance to connect with industry leaders, like Axons, agricultural leader, and CDG, in the top 3 best IT companies in Thailand.

I don’t need to emphasize how wonderful 42 Bangkok is: I receive daily requests from international students who want to join, whether it’s for the beginning of their educational journey or for a transfer from another campus!
