The establishment of the Nondhaburi Telecommunication Training Center on August 24, 1960 with academic cooperation from the Government of Japan marked the origination of KMITL. The training center became the Nodhaburi Institute of Telecommunications under the Columbo Plan, later in 1964.
As specified by the 1971 King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Act, KMITL was originated by an amalgamation of three technical colleges: Nondhaburi Institute of Telecommunications, North Bangkok Technical College and Thonburi Technical College. In the same year, the Nondhaburi Institute of Telecommunications, or known as King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology at Nondhaburi Campus, was relocated to the district of Ladkrabang in Bangkok. The new campus was called ”Chao Khun Taharn Ladkrabang Campus”. The Nondhaburi Institute of Telecommunications became the Faculty of Engineering in 1972. In the same year, the College of Design and Construction located at the Bangplad district was transformed into the Faculty of Architecture affiliated with KMITL.
The name of the institute, KMITL (King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang) was honorably derived from the name of King Rama IV. The royal grand crown seal has been graciously used as the emblem of the institute. With 50 years of experience and devotion to the field of science and technology, KMITL has been widely considered as one of the most prestigious institutes in Thailand, producing a great number of professional “Practical Engineers” in various fields of engineering every year. With the philosophy “Education and Research in Science and Technology are the Foundation of the Development of the Nation”, KMITL endeavors to improve itself in all aspects, with the aim to progress towards the new era of technology as one of the top education institutes in Asia.
