PWA aims to transform itself into a digital agency, PWA 4.0 so we work with Thammasat University to apply information technology to support the water supply distribution process. As a result, our main purpose is to support the water supply distribution process as we see the importance of using academic work and applying information technology for PWA’s affairs. We encourage the management of water supply distribution processes and water loss management as it is the exchange of knowledge and experience to apply in the work operation. We also encourage Thammasat’s students to learn from real work experience by applying information technology to support the water supply distribution process. This cooperation will apply knowledge and information technology to use in 234 branches of PWA all over the countries”.
