Vietnam’s top technical universities, working with U.S. universities, Intel, and the U.S. and Vietnamese governments, have embarked on an ambitious initiative to modernize their engineering degree programs, in the “Higher Engineering Education Alliance Program.”

The program is still in its inception, and we invite other industry to learn about the program and to join in the effort, upgrade the quality of technical education in Vietnam. This will ensure that Vietnamese universities are prepared to meet the demand for a highly-skilled workforce as more modern manufacturing FDI comes to Vietnam.

Fulton Schools of Engineering, to see how your company can play a role in developing the technical workforce in Vietnam.

The aim of this strategic alliance is to develop and advance interdisciplinary and applied engineering curriculum through instructional innovation to Vietnamese technical universities. Vietnamese faculty are being trained in “active” teaching methodology,” and are working to transform today’s theory-based engineering curricula into strong academic and hands-on degrees.
