"I am honored to be selected as the ninth President of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT). AIT has had an illustrious history, dating back to 1959 when it was established to provide education and training to future engineers and academics and leaders of Asia. Situated just outside Bangkok, AIT is an international private graduate-studies-only English-speaking university focusing on engineering, environment, and management. To date, there are over 23,000 alumni residing and working in over 100 countries and territories and economies across the globe, with many in key business and academic and government leadership positions. Our alumni’s success and their wide spread presence give testament to the quality international education they have received at AIT.
Today, as we approach our 60th Anniversary, we have over 1800 students from 45 countries on our beautiful suburban campus, and they are pursuing a stimulating education while having a vibrant international student life. Our research on issues relevant to this region and our connections to governments and NGOs are our core strengths. As I mentioned in my Vision Talk after I took office in September 2018, leveraging on these core strengths, AIT is moving smartly forward in the new era, by embracing innovation, by being international, by working with enterprises, by nurturing entrepreneurship, by caring for stakeholders, and by broadening support--or I2E2S2 for short.
For those of you looking to further your graduate education in the fields we offer, welcome to this website and I hope you will join the AIT family!"
