How AIT degree helped you in achieving your career potential/goals

-I was offered a dotoral scholarship by the French government before I completed my MSc. Degree from AIT. I believe, this was possible of my AIT education. My degree from AIT was highly evaluated by the authorities in France and they considered my degree was as good as a doctorate one. Not only that, I was also given admission at the Michigan State University of the USA on the basis of my AIT degree. Due to fund constraints, I could not avail it. Not only that, the 18 months’ course and research activities at AIT made me more confident in my field of specialization.
