Following the Digital Government Programme, CMU is incorporating digital technology into its operations to enhance work efficiency and improve service experience. CMU, by the Registration Office and Smart Campus Management Centre (SCMC), is the first university in Thailand to adopt the DOPA-Digital ID system through the ThaID application provided by the Department of Provincial Administration (DOPA), Ministry of the Interior, for the registration of new undergraduate and graduate students for the Academic Year 2023. This digital system, which allows for a quicker and more secure self-authentication by reducing unnecessary steps in document verification, can be employed by public and private organizations in providing digital services in the future.

Associate Professor Dr. Phrut Sakulchangsatjatai, Director of the CMU Registration Office, stated that ‘2022 was the first academic year that we offered the digital self-authentication service through NDID (National Digital ID), in addition to self-authentication via photograph. We are the first educational institution to incorporate NDID into the student registration process. This year, the incorporation of DOPA-Digital ID helped reduce verification steps by officers and saved a lot of time. We have great feedback from students and we project that digital self-authentication will expand to other services by the university as well.’

The CMU Registration Office strives to utilize digital technology effectively and sustainably, in line with the CMU Digital Transformation scheme that will make CMU a true ‘digital university’.
