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

After I earned my Ph.D. in 1964, I went to Canada to become an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and then an Associate Professor in Computing Science at the University of Alberta. In 1968, I moved to the US to become Director of Graduate Studies in Computer Science at the University of Missouri in Columbia, and in 1973 at the age of 36 became a Full Professor at the State University of New York (SUNY). In 1974 I returned to Thailand to become Professor of Applied Statistics and President of the Faculty Council at the National Institute of Administration. In 1981, I was voted Asian Computer Man of the Year by Computer Asia in Hong Kong. In 1985, I became the first highest ranking Professor of Engineering in Thailand (Distinguished Professor or PC 11 which is the  same rank as a Field Marshal and one rank higher than a Provincial Governor) at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. I was appointed one of the three experts in the eGovernment Committee chaired by the Prime Minister. I was named Father of the Thai Internet and Father of Thai eLearning. I was named Fellow of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, I was Chairman and owner of Internet KSC Company, the first and largest Internet Service Provider  in Thailand once valued at one billion US $. I was elected one of the five Directors of Asia Pacific Network Information Center, one of the 15 members of the Board of Trustees of global Internet Society, and one of the 10 members of the Board of Trustees of IFIPS.
