HCM City (VNA) - RMIT Vietnam has launched the university’s first international-standard PhD programme with three degree options: Business, Management, or Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

“PhD candidates can choose to base themselves in Vietnam, with a co-supervisor also based here, but still be counted as an RMIT Melbourne Higher Degree Research student,” said Professor Gael McDonald, president of the university.

“We will provide doctoral candidates support from a group of experienced and trained research supervisors who will help them develop research skills and knowledge needed to maximise their potential.”

“A PhD signifies a unique contribution to knowledge, whether it’s developing new economic models that save time and increase efficiency or developing innovations that save our environment,” McDonald said.

Two scholarships that will be fully funded by RMIT Vietnam will be specifically for women, in engineering, where women’s participation in the labour force is low, and in business, where senior leadership is predominantly men.-VNA
