|Dr. Dok Doma||Dr. Lay Chanthy|
It was a great moment, a great memory, and a great achievment for our seniors to successfully completed their PhD studies and recieved the PhD degrees. Dr. Dok Doma and Dr. Lay Chanthy are the two Cambodian seniors students at AIT who graduated their PhD on 114th graduation ceremony (December 17, 2010) after Dr. Choun Chansophea who graduated his PhD in May 2010.
CASA is very proudful for the hard work of our PhD scholars who eventually be able to successfully complete their research mission at AIT. This great achievement is not the only part of the graduates'success but also the part of CASA's success.
"After swiming for 5 years in the ocean, finally I approached the shore. With this connection, I would like to inform all of you that now I have comepleted my PhD study and graduated on this 17 Dec.", said Dr. Chanthy, whose major is Urban Environmental Management. Meanwhile Dr Doma whose field of study is Aquaculture and Aquatic Resources Management also expressed his feeling before leaving AIT, "My mission in AIT is finished after i am awarded the degree of doctor of philosophy. I really recognize that i have been enjoyable with our CASA society very much."
During this great ocassion, both of them had also brought their lovely families to join the graduation ceremony. However, not many CASA's members stayed at AIT during this time since they are on vacation holiday and data collection. So there was no CASA's formal farewell party celebration for our seniors, but only an informal farewell party with Dr. Chanty and his family. Dr. Doma was unable to join this informal party since he had to leave earlier.
Last but not least, CASA would like to wish the PhD graduates a great happiness and successful in professional career.
