How AIT degree helped you in achieving your career potential/goals
        In the year 1961, when I graduated MS (Hydraulics Engineering) from AIT with the highest grade, I got a scholarship from the US government to study for Ph.D. at Georgia Institute of Technology with the written purpose of the Ph.D. for me to be a computer leader in Thailand. 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 $.
