Notion and Impression of KMUTT

“I always try to think of a new way of working and management because the management is important not only for schools or faculties but also for research and also the relationship with the industry sector.  However, the innovation has to face with difficulties as the first recognition is little.  The significant working principle is to maintain effort despite less support but to work diligently and perfectly.  If the output is less than expectation, we should have understanding and be pleased with colleagues, subordinates, heads or even ourselves.”
