History and Background
Established in the year 1993, the Computer Center
originated from a computer service center project
set up to provide training and practical
experience for students as well as academic
services to the local community and various units
both inside and outside the university. It was
also intended to offer research and administrative
services for the entire university in support of
industrial development along the eastern seaboard.
At first, this project was attached to the
administrative unit of Srinakharinwirot
University, Bangsaen Campus.
Bangsaen Campus, in 1990, became the full-fledged
Burapha University. Due to its resulting higher
level of responsibility and a greater amount of
work, the university issued a policy to create a
unit directly responsible for computer services to
support its teaching and learning, research,
academic services, and administrative efforts. The
unit would also help reduce duplication of
computer staff and computer hardware on the
university grounds. To allow for efficient and
uncomplicated computer services as well as
successful achievement of the computing unit’s
objectives, the university made provisions for the
Computer Center Estabishing Project with status
equal to that of a university faculty in the
seventh phase of the university development plan.
1992 – Present
On September 14, 1992 the
university announced via the Royal Gazette the
plan to promote the Computer Center Estabishing
Project to become the Computer Center, equal in
status to a faculty.
The Computer Center
will strive to become a hub and leader in bringing
information and communications technology or ICT
knowledge and innovation to support education,
research, and administration of the university and
to also provide academic services to society.
