A cooperation agreement in hi-tech engineer training was signed in Ho Chi Minh City on April 8 by France’s Dasault Systèmes Group, the French Education Ministry and the University of Science and Technology of Hanoi (USTH).

Under the agreement, Dasault Systèmes, a world leader in three-dimensional (3D) design and product lifecycle management (PLM), will establish a PLM competency centre in USTH to help its students experience lessons using 3D technology.

It will introduce PLM, 3D software and applications to Vietnamese teachers and students, and provide staff with advanced teaching methods using technology.

Phillippe Forestier, the group’s Executive Vice President of Global Affairs and Communities, pledged to help USTH create a high-tech learning environment.

Next week, it will recruit French professors to travel to Vietnam and lecture at the university in the 2013-2014 academic year, he added.-VNA
