All Engineering Programs adhere to the general admissions policy of Mahidol University which consists of two systems, namely, TCAS system and Direct Admission system of Mahidol University. By this policy, TCAS system is applicable to all undergraduate Thai programs whereas Direct Admission system specified to all International Programs of Mahidol University at the bachelor level. The Thai Engineering Programs requires freshman admission through the TCAS system only, the International Engineering Programs provide freshman admission through both TCAS system and Direct Admission system of Mahidol University.
The Thai University Central Admission System or TCAS system has been organized and developed since 2017 by Council of University Presidents of Thailand (CUPT). This system has one admission cycle in a year and consists of 4 rounds of admission in sequence from round 1 to round 4 namely, Portfolio, Quota, Admission and Direct Admission, respectively. All Thai university or college is responsible to set up the admission criteria, interview process including announcement for the qualified applicants in the TCAS round 1 (Portfolio), round 2 (Quota) and round 4 (Direct Admission). CUPT will also be responsible for setting criteria and managerial operation for round 3 or Admission to select the qualified applicants from all over the country providing to all Thai university and college. For academic year 2021, around 300,000 nationwide applicants applied in TCAS round 3 in order to be admitted into program selected from total number of 8,371 programs within 81 universities in different professional area including engineering (https://www.mytcas.com/). If the applicants are qualified through the process in each round, they must affirm and claim their own right to stop the TCAS process using the clearing-house system. The qualified applicants that might not satisfied for his/her selected result must give up one’s right before applying to the next round of TCAS.

The TCAS admission plan, criteria and schedule for each year will be organized and early announced by CUPT.

The criteria requirements for admission to Mahidol University and its individual programs are reviewed annually. At the university level, recommendations that emerge from annual assessments are forwarded to the University’s Executive Committee for consideration.
