       Vis Sripawadkul joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering as lecturer after he received his B.Eng. in Aerospace Engineering from Kasetsart University in 2004. He then continued in higher degree level in Computational Mechanics at Technical University Munich, Germany and Engineering Design at Cranfield University, UK, where he was awarded MSc and MPhil respectively. He returned to Kasetsart Univeristy in 2012 and continued his work in the aircraft design and optimisation. He also expands his area of interest to airport engineering and has been working in many consulting projects in this area.
