Dear Alumni Colleagues
First of all, I and the AIT Management would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of AIT alumni for the cooperation and tremendous supports of AIT over the past year.
In the coming year 2016, AIT will be at a critical juncture, where AIT must clearly distinguish itself (from other traditional universities) as a regional leader in the "internationalization" of higher education and professional education, and as a regional hub for "transnational and multidisciplinary research" alias "the research for mankind". This is most likely a formula that can ensure AIT's roles in the globalization age, leading to its long-term financial sustainabilty. Meanwhile for the longer term, AIT will create a strategic team that will scan, monitor and follow the changing trends of higher education so AIT will not fall into the trap by new disruptive technologies.
With much appreciation, I have compiled selected AIT's activities and headline news in 2015 for your information as you may find in the attachment. In case you may be interested, I have compiled some historical photos of AIT under a set of slides called "Faces of AIT Heritage", which is available at
Although on the road to success, the rule is to always look ahead. However, for once, I really suggest you to browse through the above set of slides to learn more about the root of our proud alma mater.
May I also take the occassion to wish you and your loved ones a Happy New Year 2016.
With warm regards,
Professor Worsak Kanok-Nukulchai
